Garlic chive seeds grow well in a variety of soil types, though they prefer moist well drained soil and full sun or partial shade.

Seed stems are also harvested and often used in Asian dishes. This herb is moderately hardy.
How to Grow Garlic Chives From Seed
# 1 | Prepare your location in a place where the chives will be in full sun and where water drains quickly after rainfall. Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 8 inches, then level the surface.
# 2 | Sow the seeds about 1/4th inch deep into the soil, and keep the soil evenly moist.
# 3 | Seedlings should emerge in 7-14 days.
#4 | Keep the soil moist while the seedlings are developing and during growing season, especially during dry spells. The garlic chives need about 1 inch of rain per week during growing season.
