Award-Winning Geisha Garlic Chives, or Allium Tuberosum, are flavorful and easy to grow. They have a wide variety of culinary uses and taste like a scrumptious, light combination of garlic and onions. Their grass-green, tubular stalks are attractive and fragrant all season long. One tuberous root of Geisha can quickly multiply into clumps of dozens, and you can cut from your Garlic Chives all year. This herbaceous plant is an aggressive grower, so you’ll never have to go without it. Another benefit to Geisha Garlic Chives is that their creamy, star-shaped blooms have incredible ornamental value, and attract butterflies, even late into the fall.

Geisha Garlic Chives grow in clumps. You should only harvest from established clumps. To harvest, cut to the base of the leaves, just above soil level. Garlic Chives thrive in soil that is slightly acidic, well-drained and has adequate depth. The ideal pH for Geisha’s is 6 to 7.

Garlic Chives Geisha Allium Care

It takes Garlic Chives between 8 and 10 weeks to grow to maturity from seed, and they can reach 12 to 15 inches in height. Geishas need ample sun, and should receive approximately 6 to 7 hours of sunlight most days. They should be spaced 2-3 inches apart when propagating or setting. 

Growing Garlic Chives Geisha Allium

Garlic Chives are excellent as an indoor plant, and a welcome addition to any herb garden. You can plant your seedlings outdoors when the stalks reach the size of a thin pencil. New tubers should be planted in a place where they are safe from wind, chill, and hot sun. You should not divide your Garlic Chives until they have been established for several years, up to four. If your Geishas are still young, deadhead any blooms to give strength to your plants for the upcoming season. 

Geishas can thrive both indoor and outdoors and do well in a variety of pots and containers. You can choose any pot that is at least eight inches deep. They store well in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

Watering Growing Garlic Chives Geisha Alliums

Ample water is most important when the tuberous roots of the chives are young. Soil for Scallions should be evenly moist, but be careful not to over water. Over-watering can lead to rot in the delicate roots. Outdoor beds should be watered every two days or when the soil appears dry.

Feeding Garlic Chives Geisha Alliums

You should use a liquid plant feed on your Geishas every six weeks, especially after harvesting. Outdoors, it is best to work a balanced fertilizer into the soil before sowing or placing tubers.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
