Chives grow fast when it’s warm. If you want chives to grow slower put them in a cool place or outdoors.
1. When planting in the garden, do so in late autumn or early spring, sheltered from the wind, with soil rich in nutrients.
2. It tolerate drought well but water regularly if you pick them often. If the leaves start to droop, you need to water it.
3. Add plant food to the water after every pruning.
When to Harvest
Flowers should be pinched off to encourage leaf growth.
The more often you prune them, the weaker and thinner the stems will grow.
Add plant food to the water after every pruning, and let the plant ‘rest’ from time to time.

2. Cube tray
Press pieces into an ice cube tray half-filled with water.
Place the tray in your freezer. Can be kept for 4 to 6 months.
