The garlic chives is a very old perennial spice and medicinal plant, originally from China. In Chinese traditional medicine (TCM) and Japanese (TJM), the herb is considered an effective natural remedy and is promising for cancer prevention. The leaves of the white-flowered cut bone blue are flat and have a savory and sweet garlic aroma. The seeds are also edible and can be used as a spice. The grown and hardy plant attracts many insects.

Care Plants
A regular harvest is necessary to stimulate the new shoot. Due to the initially slow growth of the plants, we recommend weeding the surrounding herbs regularly. M It animal manure prepared beds and planting in mixed culture, replaces additional fertilization.
