Description

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.

Care Tips

The flowers of the garlic chives have a pretty smell, a little like old-fashioned roses, so will perfume the room - it grows well in window boxes in the kitchen.
