Q.Growing Chives Inside

Anonymous added on March 8, 2014 | Answered

I am going to try to grow chives inside from seeds for the first time. I have a tiny pot I would like to use; it is about 4.5″ across and about 3.5″ deep. It will go inside a large decorative pot. I read the guide to planting about the damp soil but I am unsure how many seeds I should use in the small pot. The package of seeds I bought has about 750 seeds. My plan is to move it outside when it’s warmer.

There's no specific number I can really give. You can simply put a small amount in your hand and sprinkle them onto the soil, covering lightly (about 1/4 inch). Once they germinate and begin getting some size to them, you can thin them out as needed.
