Sowing

Sow seeds directly into the garden from early Spring through Summer. Garlic chives prefer full sun but will tolerate light shade.Rich, loamy, well-drained soil is best. Cover seed with 1/8- 1/4 inch of fine soil. Firmly tamp down soil after sowing.


Care & Harvesting

Harvest outer leaves cutting just above ground level with a knife. Use leaves fresh or dry them before plants flower as they lose flavor and texture after that point.   Keep plants well watered in summer. Divide crowded clumps every 2 years.   Snip leaves at the base frequently to encourage growth.


Use in Cooking

Garlic Chives make the perfect addition to salads, soups, stir-fry, spreads, flavored vinegars, and a variety of ethnic recipes.Leaves and flowers can also be used to infuse a hint of garlic into sauces.  


Preserving

Leaves can be dried for later use.  Fresh leaves freeze well in airtight containers or plastic bags.
