Garlic Chives-Allium Tuberosum Seeds
Every part of the garlic chive plant is edible, from its small bulb to its flat (not hollow, like other chives‘) stems to its white blooms and even its tiny black seeds. Use both stalk and leaves of this mild garlicky-flavored vegetable as you would onions, chives, or green onions.
I ts garlicky scent deters carrot fly, the carrot fly can smell carrots from up to a mile away!
Sow the seeds lightly onto a tray or pot of damp compost in early Spring and cover with 1cm of fine sifted compost. The seeds can also be sown directly outdoors from April to June into drills and thinned out to 20cm-30cm apart.
