Start seeds indoors, about a week before outdoor soils can be worked. Keep watered but not wet. Transplant outdoors in clumps when chives are about 3" tall. Or, direct sow outdoors in a weed-free area at any time. Chives grow slowly at first, but are extremely hardy and fast-growing once established. For best culinary quality, cut chives every week or two. Enjoy edible pink flowers.
