Incredibly useful and easy to grow, Garlic Chives will be a welcome addition to any garden, herbal or otherwise. 'Geisha' has long, slightly flattened, tubular, grass-like foliage that makes a fragrant clump in the garden and features the strong scent of garlic and onions when crushed. Garlic Chives are ready for use immediately and constantly throughout the season. The plant grows aggressively so you'll never be short of it for flavoring a wide range of meals throughout the season.
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:
Thirives in full sun and normal to dry soils. Fertilize with compost at planting time and then regularly with an all purpose, organic vegetable food according to package instructions. Over watering can cause the bulb to rot, so water moderately. Remove spent flowers to reduce seedlings next season.
