Chives are a perennial plant of the Liliaceae family and form thick bushes. The root is bulbous, while the leaves are long and thin, tubular in shape and of a bright green colour. It is an aromatic known for thousands of years, to be consumed fresh to garnish and enhance the taste of crepes, sauces, flavored butters, soups and sometimes fish dishes.

 

Cultivating it is easy both in pots on the terrace and in the garden, as well as being an important plus in the kitchen it is also beautiful from an aesthetic point of view, in fact it gives us many sphere-shaped purple flowers that appear from the end of spring until summer . The leaves dry out during the winter but return to sprout in spring from the roots which are preserved during the vegetative rest, this is another good reason to cultivate chives: after having sown it the first year, we will have pots and flowerbeds that are always colorful and fragrant. Furthermore, like all onions, it has repellent properties against many parasitic insects.

 

Chives can be sown outdoors from April to June in a sunny position. We can anticipate it in March, resorting to protected sowing in a seedbed to be protected in case or in a greenhouse. In both cases, the seeds should be placed at a depth of 1cm and a distance of 20cm. The harvesting of the stems lasts almost all year round, from February to December.

 

The sachet contains about 100 Seeds which will be more than enough to obtain fresh chives all year round!
