How to Grow Onion Chives

Our organically grown Onion Chives thrive in full sun exposure and well-drained soil, making them suitable for gardens, containers, and even confined spaces. These low-maintenance herbs require moderate to high water levels, with watering as needed to keep the soil evenly moist throughout the season. To promote robust growth and a bountiful harvest, feed with a vegetable fertilizer and ensure adequate spacing between plants. Harvest the leaves as needed by pinching them off at the base of the plant, preferably in the early morning for the best flavor. With proper care, Onion Chives will flourish, providing a continuous supply of fresh, aromatic foliage for your culinary adventures.

Our USDA-Certified Organic herbs are sustainably nurtured, ensuring superior quality and taste for your herb garden.
