- Growth Habit
Chives are cool-season, cold-tolerant perennials best planted in early to mid-spring for an early summer harvest. Be mindful when planting this herb, as it will take over your garden if the flowers are allowed to develop fully (the flowers scatter the seeds). However, this plant is easy to dig up and move if it does end up invading other parts of your garden. Chives are also a wonderful companion plant that deters pests. They’re a good friend to plant with carrots, celery, lettuce, peas, and tomatoes.
Zones 3 - 9. Full sun to partial shade. The more sun the plant receives, the more water it will need. For best harvest, keep plant consistently moist but not wet. Blooms early summer.
