Chives - Garlic - Allium tuberosum
Hardy Perennial Also called Chinese leeks, garlic chives resemble regular chives except that their leaves are shiny and flat. The plant bears beautiful, white flower heads. The distinct garlic flavor of these chives makes them a great choice for adding to salads, omelets, and stir-fry dishes.

Planting & Care
Soil & Water: Chives like loose, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Water evenly and moderately while establishing.
Planting & Growing: Start 4-6 weeks before the last frost or sow directly once soils have reached 55°F. Chives grow slowly and usually need about a year of growth before they can be routinely harvested. They can be potted and moved indoors to provide a fresh supply for cooking all year.
Harvesting & Storage: Snip leaves when large enough to use. The flowers are also edible and have a mild oniony flavor. Harvest flowers before they open completely to avoid reseeding tendencies.
