Growing in clumps of flat, gray-green leaves, garlic chives are valued for their mild flavor--perfect for a hint of garlic
but not too overwhelming. They also produce 2-foot-tall stalks with 2-inch white seedheads, ideal for mixing-and-matching
in flower arrangements. Used either fresh or dried, they add a refreshing scent to any room.
Garlic chives are especially easy to grow because they spread from both their tuberous rootstocks and from seeds. Scatter their seeds in a well-drained garden bed that gets at least six hours of sunlight daily, and let them grow. Garlic chives self-seed so profusely that the only maintenance they really require is cutting them back to make sure they don't spread to every part of your garden.
