Garlic chives or Chinese chives differ from ordinary chives in having flat leaves and a delicate mild garlic flavour. They can be used in salads and stews as well as fish egg or meat dishes. The blossom buds are a Chinese delicacy and can be eaten raw or stir fried.This hardy perennial is easy to grow and ideal for pots or borders. Sow these seeds in spring in a good seed compost just covering the seed with compost. Germination usually takes 14-21 days at 19-21C. Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle planting 4 seedlings in each 7.5cm pot.When well rooted move to a cold frame and plant out 20cm apart. Plant each potful so the soil level in the pot is about 5cm below the ground. For best results plant in a sunny spot in rich fertile well drained soil.The following spring draw up the soil around the plants and a first cut can be made 3-4 weeks later.Quantity: 100 seeds
