Site Selection

Chives are a perennial that prefers full sun and fertile, well-drained soil.


Chives can be direct seeded outdoors in early spring. Optimal soil temperatures for germination are 65-85°F. Sow seeds ¼" deep and 3-4" apart. Seeds will germinate in 7-14 days. Thin seedlings so mature plants are 8-12" apart.


Chives can be harvested as soon as plants are large enough. Harvest from the outer portion of plant first. Snip leaves so that 1-2" inches remain above the soil. Chives can be used fresh, dried, or frozen for long-term storage.
