Chives Growing Tips and Advice

Moist, rich soil and plenty of sun and trimmings or “haircuts” will result in healthy chives. Common chives are mostly evergreen in mild climates, but become dormant in harsh winter regions.

 
 

Planting Chives

Chives easily can grow from seeds, which require darkness, moisture, and 60-70°F temperatures. Sow ¼ inch deep. Begin snipping the blades when they are about 6 inches tall. Since chives grow in clumps, they multiply to form small plants. Divide your chives every 3 years or so.

Days to Harvest: Cut fresh leaves for use as they grow.
Days to Germinate: 8-13
