    Garlic Chives

    These seeds are cut-and-come-again garlic chives with white edible flowers that taste gently of garlic and are flat – not round – in their leaf profile. Garlic chives grow and flower much later than ordinary chives (I'm still picking them in November), so have a succession of both…
