Garlic Chive Plants

Allium tuberosum

Related to onions, garlic and even lilies, this member of the Allium family produces a lovely, subtle flavor that compliments eggs, potatoes, stir-frys, and soups wonderfully without overpowering the dish. Adding a light garlic flavor with a hint of onion, Garlic Chives are a terrific culinary herb to have close at hand. Similar to their less garlic-flavored cousin, Chives, Garlic Chives have a flat blade, unlike the hollow spear of regular variety. We also sell Geisha Garlic Chives if you are looking for a more subtle flavor.

You can easily grow either variety in your garden, trimming as much of the green blades as needed. Quick to regrow, Chives love full sun and moist soil and should thrive if given the proper conditions. The dense clumps that they grow into can be divided and transplanted without hassle, and harvesting is best before the plant begins to flower.

Garlic Chives Benefits

As with other Alliums, Garlic Chives possess bioflavonoids, natural antioxidants that are beneficial to your skin. Throughout time, they have been used as a medicinal herb to care for sunburns and recent medical technology suggests they may reduce the occurrence of certain types of cancers.

Also available in our four inch hand thrown Guy Wolff Greenhouse Pot. The aged finish of these classic terracotta pots will add style to your naturally beautiful plants! Whether it's a "thank you" for the hostess with the "mostest", or a corporate Christmas gift, these potted herbs make the perfect gift.

A wonderful addition to your "Kitchen Herb Garden", try planting this delicacy with Cilantro and Chives for a truly gourmet garden!

Terrific garlic chive plant May 31, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Potomac Falls, VA United States  
I received a fully grown chive plant with strong, healthy spikes.  I re-potted it into a container on a windowsill and have been snipping off the tasty tops for a few weeks.  My hope is that this plant will keep producing yummy garlic chives for a long time.
