Organic Common Chives Seeds (Allium schoenoprasum) with lavender-pink blooms, 
15 seeds per package

Chives are a perennial, bulb-forming culinary herb with a mild onion flavor. Grown for both the edible scapes and pleasing, globe-shaped blooms that make an attractive garnish.

The slender, onion-flavored, green foliage of chives can be eaten fresh or cooked, and can even be frozen for use later. The cheery, lavender-pink flowers of this perennial herb are also edible and make this species a welcome addition to ornamental borders. Plants will self-sow.

Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Transplant outdoors as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Chives are also easy to direct seed. Established plants can easily be divided in both spring and fall. Remove spent blossoms regularly to prolong blooming.
