Start in flats in early spring. Transplant 5" apart to full sun to partial shade, in a well composted soil. Forms perennial clump to 10-24". Easily grown; fastest growth and most succulent usable stems if there is adequate water and compost. Will survive even in boggy poorly drained conditions or shallow standing water. Cut small bunches right at the base rather than clipping a large area, for best regrowth. Remove flowering stems, which are tough.

Great human and hummingbird food
on 01/17/17 by Calvin Wilkins in Western Oregon

Chives have become a staple of our garden. They do so much - incredibly drought tolerant, bee and hummingbird food, and add a lot of flavor to salads, soups and such. I decided to dramatically expand our chives when I realized how often the hummingbirds visited them, and how they survived almost total neglect. Really great plants.

Germination has been excellent for these seeds and service was fast from Bountiful Gardens.
