Garlic chives or Chinese chives, Allium tuberosum, are a close relative of ordinary chives, and are just as easily grown by the same cultivation methods. But rather than tasting mildly of onions, as regular chives do, garlic chives have a sweet garlic flavour, especially when the leaves are young.
Allium tuberosum leaves are especially useful when garlic is out of season or unavailable, and may be kept going in pots over winter indoors to prolong supplies. For best results grow in full sun in well-drained soil, or in pots on the patio.
