Sometimes known as Chinese Chives, Garlic Chives are an easy to grown perennial plant that are beneficial to grow as as edible herb, and a natural pest repellent.  Both the leaves and lovely white flowers are edible with garlic flavour.

It grows in dense clumps with grass-like flat leaves reaching approx. 25 cm. 

Sow seed approx. 8mm deep, Spring, Summer or divide established clumps in Autumn. Germination approx. 14-21 days, full sun, moist well-drained soil.  Matures in approx. 60-90 days.

When dividing clumps, trim the tops, dig up entire clump, trim the roots and separate the rhizomes. Each rhizome can then be replanted. Division every two years improves the growth rate of the clumps.
