A flat leaved variety also known as Chines chives.
Good to use in salads, stir fries and with cream cheese, where they will impart a distinctly mild garlic flavour.

How to Guide
Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a little more compost. Place in warmth 10-15C (50-60F) and keep moist.
Potting on/Thining Out
Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from bright sun. When large enough to handle, transplant to 8cm (3in) pots, allowing 3 or 4 seedlings per pot.
Hardening Off/Planting Out
Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out. Allow 30cm (12in) between each group of plants.
