Q. Controlling Chives

Help, our chives have taken over! How do I get rid of chives that have gone out of their bed into other parts of the garden?

Dig them up and move them. Also dead head the blooms to prevent seeds from falling and starting new plants. Or you can take a small paint brush and "paint" roundup on the ones that you wish to illiminate. Good luck!!

Q. Growing Chives Indoors From Seeds

Do I spread the seeds around the flower pot or put them in all together in one spot? What size flower pot do I need? What is the minimum number of seeds I should plant in a flower pot? This is a first for me and I’d like it to be right.

Spread them out or you'll have to thin them down once they come up. The following article should be of some help to you as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/chives/how-to-plant-chives-growing-chives-in-your-garden.htm

Chives are flowering plants. You can eat the flowers the same as you can eat the leaves.
