Garlic Chives - Allium Tuberosum
The plant has a distinctive growth habit with flat solid leaves unlike either onion or garlic, and straight thin white-flowering stalks that are much taller than the leaves. It grows in slowly expanding clumps, but also readily sprouts from seed. Besides its use as vegetable, it also has attractive flowers. It grows to a height of 30 cm, and features a delicate flavour of garlic and onion.
Sow outside in spring in shallow drills with a light covering of soil. The soil needs to be rich, moist and also well-drained. Thin plants to 9 inches apart, and keep the soil moist - especially in dry spells. Divide and replant every four years. Alternatively, sow inside in spring/autumn direct into a pot or container. It prefers full sun.
