About Chives

Chives (Allium schoenoprasum) are herbaceous perennial plants that belong to the onion family. With their slender, hollow leaves and delicate purple flowers, chives are not only visually captivating but also possess remarkable botanical features. 

Chives have been associated with potential antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Certain compounds found in chives, such as allicin, have been studied for their ability to combat bacteria and fungi, making them a valuable addition to natural remedies. Additionally, chives may assist in regulating blood pressure and cholesterol levels, further contributing to cardiovascular health. They are packed with essential nutrients like vitamins A, C, and K, as well as minerals like calcium and iron which contribute to overall health and well-being, aiding in digestion, supporting the immune system, and promoting healthy bone development. 


How to Use Chives

  • Tincture: Fresh or dried chives leaves are chopped and macerated in grain alcohol for 4 to 6 weeks to formulate a tincture.
  • Tea: In hot water, dried chives leaves can be soaked for 10 minutes to make tea.
  • Vinegar infusion: Chive leaves and flowers can be soaked in apple cider vinegar for 3 to 6 weeks, shaking and adding vinegar during the period, to form a Chives vinegar infusion.

Chives - Live Plant Frequently Asked Questions

Is Chives an annual or perennial plant?

Chives are a perennial plant. They are known for their ability to come back year after year, making them a reliable addition to a garden or herb bed. They can continue to thrive and produce leaves for many years with proper care and maintenance. Their hardy nature and ability to withstand various growing conditions make them a popular choice for gardeners.


How much space should be needed to grow Chives?

Chives are relatively compact plants and don't require a lot of space to grow. Each chive plant forms a clump of slender, grass-like leaves that can reach a height of 12 to 24 inches (30 to 60 centimeters) and spread about 12 inches (30 centimeters) wide. It is advised to plant individual chive plants or clumps with a spacing of around 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters) apart to allow for good growth. Each plant can benefit from appropriate sunlight, airflow, and soil nutrients thanks to this spacing.


What zone does Chives grow in?

Typically, chives are hardy in USDA hardiness zones 3 through 9. They can withstand the cold and even endure brief frosts. They might, however, benefit from some shade during the sweltering summers in warmer climates. It's crucial to remember that while chives can endure chilly weather, they may suffer or go dormant in very hot and humid environments.


When should I harvest Chives?

Chives can be harvested throughout the growing season, starting from when they reach a height of about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters) or when the leaves are large enough to be used in the kitchen.


Does Chive flower or fruit?

Although the chives (Allium schoenoprasum) do produce flowers, they do not bear fruits like some other plants do. The chives plant has small, beautiful flowers that bloom on long, slender stalks. These flowers are typically pink or purple in color.
