(Best months for growing Chives in USA - Zone 5a regions)
S = Plant undercover in seed trays T = Plant out (transplant) seedlings P = Sow seed
Grass-like leaves in clumps. Likes full sun but not too dry.
Chives are a perennial but die down in winter. You can dig up a small clump to pot up for indoor use in winter.
Remove flowers to encourage a continuous supply of leaves.
If weeding gets away from you, you can easily distinguish chives from grass because chives have a hollow leaf stem and onion smell.
Use raw in salads or as a mild onion flavour in cooked dishes.
We cannot help if you are overrun by giant slugs.
