GARLIC CHIVES

Garlic chives - Allium tuberosumBy coniferconifer CC BY 2.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Allium tuberosum
Description

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.

Many years ago (over ten) I started gardening as a teenager. I planted some garlic chives and the clump got bigger and bigger. So I gave a clump to my dad, and he planted them in a pot and the clump got bigger and bigger. When he came to see our place for the first time, he brought some clumps down with him. Now they're in our vegie patch. This plant is very special to me because of it's history.

Spring 2011: I used to have a HUGE clump at my old house but the ones that I brought here never seems to take off. A few months ago I decided to break them up and put some in a pot with a fig. They love it there and have double in size and have put out a bunch of their pretty purple bell flowers for me already. I think that they didn't like the competition from the native violets crowding about them in the garden bed.


I have recently realised that these are Society Garlic Chives. They were originally mislabeled when sold as Garlic Chives but these should have white flowers and mine have purple.
