Anyone succesfully grown Chives from seed?
Getting a little annoyed Ive tried growing chives and am 0% lucky.

I followed directions and made a mini greenhouse for them. Nothing.

I bought another seed pack. Nothing. Put the seedlings above the fridge freezer as its a little hotter back there. Nothing.

Any secret to growing these babies?

Gosh. I just throw some seeds in a flower pot out back on the deck and the chives grow. I figure they are really weeds so they are hardy. Try not to "spoil" them. (I'm in NC so the temp isn't freezing all the time. The chives have wintered over.)

I have grown them before, but I didn't know what to do with them (how to dry them for use) so they rotted in the pot

do you give it water only to the roots? water it from below*
keep them spread out enough so they don't mold and keep fresh air exchange going?

A few years ago I threw some chive seeds in the corner of a flower bed- they sprouted, and come back thicker every year- never fussed over them. The area they're in get morning light and then partial sun the rest of the day. To harvest them for winter I just chop and dry them.

You probably have great soil. Check out the book All New Square Foot Garden by Mel Bartholomew. It goes great detail on how to mix soil so vegetables will grow if are not blessed with good soil.He also has a websight. www.squarefootgardening.com

Re: Anyone succesfully grown Chives from seed?
Chive seeds require a period of chilling temperatures to help them break dormancy.

If you place the pot,( with well drained soil mixture to prevent rotting the seeds), outside for a couple of months during the cold winter weather,the seeds should sprout for you once the temperature of the potting mixture warms up in the spring.
