CHIVE


Tips & tricks: Plant out at a distance of 30cm from each other and water in well. Simply harvest by cutting off the stalks around 1/4 of the way up & wait for them to regrow to harvest again.

Chives will naturally form a clump over time, so you can multiply your supplies by dividing these clumps & replanting individually.
