Closely related to shallots, leeks, and scallions, this onion variety is used as an herb in most recipes. The pale purple flowers are edible as well, and add a delicious touch of onion to any salad. Plant somewhere spacious where they can overtake. Chives like to reign and are very handy to use fresh. This perennial is hardy and grows well in pots.

First time I have good germination from chives, so happy, fast grower!

Great germination. Growing in DFW TX in a smallish window box container with partial shade in DFW TX. Started seeds in September. Delicious and so pretty.

Great germination rate. I did not need to plant more seeds this year because last year’s chives overwintered in my tiny hanging basket!

Let me tell you these things do not disappoint.
I startted them last year and had very good germination
I did not pick or cut but a few of them
They survived the winter still growing all winter long and bloomed about a month ago (start of june) I now have all those seeds to look forward to continuing to grow and thicken my patch.

Chives are a garden work horse and these do the job, good germination, nearly immortal, and prolific. what more could you ask for

Received this in early Dec 2020 and immediately started planting for indoor use. I was stunned by the 100% germination rate. I know chives are easy to grow but 100% germination is still pretty shocking. Kudos!

Who doesn’t need a stand of chives in the garden? These are awesome and I love them.

Fast grower. Great chives!

I ordered these after a failed attempt to plant chives before. I got a great germination rate and they are growing great in my raised bed herb garden.

Grew perfectly in zone 7b

Yay! They are thriving in year two! Have blossoms coming soon, and are stronger than they were the first year. So excited for my first perennial herb! Just fyi- with them being a biennial, they won’t bloom the first year you plant them.

I have never grown chives before but I heard they should be in their own container… Maybe I didn’t densely seed as much as I thought but not many are growing in the container (yes the container has proper drainage, not under/over watered). Some chives are growing but not the mini thicket I thought to see.

I didn’t have much luck with these when I planted them this spring. It may have gotten too hot or it could have been trouble with my compost because most of the plants I planted with them did not do well. I have replanted the rest of the packet for fall since our fall is more mild and spring like in zone 9 in Texas.

Delicious with beautiful flowers. Came back this year much bigger than last year!
– September 20, 2021
So happy with the germination rate of this!

Highly prolific, had enough seeds to last for years~iowa grown
– October 15, 2021
Started these once and doubt I will ever need to replant. They thrived and slowly spread if not managed. quite happy with these!
