How to Use
- Choose a well-draining soil with a balanced pH in a location that receives full sun or partial shade.
- Prepare the soil by incorporating a layer of compost or well-rotted manure and gently turning it in to a depth of approximately 15 cm.
- Sow the seeds directly into the prepared soil, spacing them 30 cm apart in rows that are 30 cm apart as well. Lightly cover the seeds with soil and water gently.
- Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Germination should occur within 7-14 days.
- Thin the seedlings if necessary, allowing 30 cm spacing between each chive plant for proper growth.
- Regularly maintain by watering, weeding, and mulching around the plants to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Fertilise occasionally with organic fertilisers like fish emulsion or compost tea.
- Harvest the leaves regularly to encourage bushy growth, leaving at least 5 cm of the stem to promote regrowth.
