Garlic chives, or Chinese chives (Allium tuberosum) differ from ordinary chives in having flat leaves and have a delicate mild garlic flavour. They can be used in the same way as chives and are excellent in salads, stews, fish, egg or meat dishes.
The blossom buds of this easy to grow perennial herb are a Chinese delicacy and can be eaten raw, stir fried or added to scrambled eggs.
It is suitable for planting in pots and containers, as well as in the ground.
Eco-friendly: This herb plant is grown in peat free compost in a biodegradable pot made from waste coir with natural latex.
