Chives are a welcome addition to a kitchen and an outdoor space. The low-maintenance Staro Chives Allium Schoenoprasum features thick, tubular bright green foliage that adds height and texture to a garden, bed, or container. The foliage and purple flowers are edible, and this plant has a mild onion flavor. Chives can be used fresh, dried, or frozen. This hardy plant grows as a perennial in USDA zones 3 through 9.

Staro Chives Allium Schoenoprasum Care

Plant chives in the spring in rich, well-drained soil. The soil should have a 6.0 to 7.0 pH. This plant thrives in full sun and generally requires very little care. The edible flowers are pretty and add color to a space. Remove the flowers so the plant will redirect energy into the foliage or prevent the plant from self-seeding.

Growing Staro Chives Allium Schoenoprasum

Chives can be harvested at any time for use in cooking. This plant will grow 12 to 18 inches tall, so it is a great option for containers or areas with limited space. 

Growing Staro Chives Allium Schoenoprasum in Containers 

Plant in a bed, garden, or a 10-inch pot. As a container plant, Chives require bright, direct sunlight and will need water when the top few inches of soil dry out.

Watering Staro Chives Allium Schoenoprasum

Chives have medium water needs. Completely saturate the soil around the plant once or twice a week, but allow the soil to dry out between watering.

Feeding Staro Chives Allium Schoenoprasum

Chives are not heavy feeders, but apply a 5-10-5 fertilizer to support abundant growth during the spring. The more the plant is harvested, the more it benefits from feeding.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

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.

Summer

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!

Winter

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.
