Botanical Name: Allium tuberosum
The flat strappy leaves of this perennial herbs add a delicate garlic flavour to stir fries, salads and other savoury dishes. They can be used in place of garlic where a less spicy and more delicate flavour is desired. The attractive white flowers are also edible and if left to mature to seed, the seeds can be sprouted for a peppery and healthy addition to the salad bowl. Garlic chives are the perfect border plant for the kitchen garden, they will thrive will very little attention, in a sunny well drained position.
