Product Details

Product Details

A fancy European strain, Fine Chives grow into the same 1′ tall clumps as regular Chives (Allium schoenoprasum), but their leaves are more refined and tender, tend to regrow faster after cutting, and develop woody stems more slowly. Add the leaves to salads or snip them into small pieces at the last minute over a bowl of hot soup, scrambled eggs, or mashed potatoes. For an elegant and traditional haute cuisine touch, use Fine Chive leaves as decorative ties for bundles of poached or steamed asparagus, green beans, or carrots. Round heads of lavender-pink flowers appear in summer. Remove them before the seeds set if you wish to control reseeding.


Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: Nevada, Georgia, Idaho, Washington.


The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Chives are hardy herbs that can be planted in containers and garden beds where their leaves are easy to harvest from spring through fall. Plants will spread by seed if the spent flower heads are not removed.

Plant Chives in full sun and average, well-drained soil. Plants appreciate regular moisture so water when the top 1″ of soil is dry to the touch. Feed monthly with a balanced fertilizer. Plants can be divided in spring.
