Chives Seed Mat

3 x 8cm mats

Availability: In stock



Botanical Name: Alliumschoenprasum

These chive seeds are carefully spaced in biodegradable paper to allow even spacing and virtually eliminate the need for thinning. Chives have a subtle onion flavour that enhances salads, egg dishes and creamy sauces. Delicious mixed with sour cream and spooned over baked or steamed potatoes.

We hope you enjoy these mat seeds, just another great example of seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

How To Grow

Simply fill a 9cm (3 ½”) round pot with soil mix leaving a 1.5cm (1/2”) gap from the top of the pot for easy watering later on. Place the mat on the soil and firm down gently. Cover with a fine layer of soil, water well. Place in a warm position, a temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist.
Plants can then be grown on a sunny windowsill or patio. Grow all year round indoors in good natural light – a north facing windowsill is perfect.
