Chive in containers

TheMasterGardener1(5B)December 22, 2011

Anyone grow chives in pots from seed? I want to know how close to spread seeds in. If I work with a 72 cell plug tray how many seeds per plug? I dont ever thin right? After that I have 4 inch pots planned out for them is that good?

Thanks.

Chives in the garden grow in thickly planted bunches. I would sow 4-6 seeds per plug. Don't thin. And when ready for transplanting, plant multiple plugs to a pot or garden location.

4 inch containers seem awfully small to me, unless you plan to transplant them yet again to a larger pot later on.
