Chives – Garlic


A BULB growing to 30cm. Not frost tender, it prefers well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates alkaline soils and somewhat drought resistant. Garlic chives have strap-shaped leaves and produces many white flowers in a round cluster. Leaves are used fresh or cooked where a mild onion-garlic flavour is needed. Flowers and flower buds can be eaten raw or cooked.


Use in salads or in the last few minutes of cooking of stews and soups. It can be used wherever you would use common chives, but with an added garlic taste. It is antibacterial, cardiac, digestive, stimulant, stomachic and tonic and nutritive.
The juice is said to be moth repellent while the whole plant can be grown to repel insects.
