Cut-and-come-again chives with a taste of garlic Decorative white flowers, which our pollinators love.
Garlic chives grow and flower much later than ordinary chives (I'm still picking them in November), so have a succession of both varieties if you have room.
Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.
