Thin, flat leaves with delicate garlic flavor.
After your first season in the Tower Garden, chives are a good option to move to a soil garden or container. Attractive white flowers in midsummer, in the second year of growth. Flowers make a great addition to bouquets and are edible. The budded flower stalks are sold as “gow choy” in Chinese grocery stores.
•Edible Flowers: Pull the florets apart and sprinkle on salads, dips, sauces, soups, stir-fries, and pizza. Great as an addition to potato salad. Flavor is of mild garlic.
