Details
How to sow
Chives thrive in full sun and rich, moist soil, although they'll tolerate partial sun and other soil types and still produce generously. Chives are high in fiber and an excellent source of calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese. They also provide healthy amounts of thiamin, niacin, pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, riboflavin, and zinc. They are a classic match for potato salad, but they are versatile enough to work with almost any cuisine. They have a light onion flavor, and their hollow, green leaves grace our summer salads, soups and almost anything else that needs a hint of garlic.
