Good things take time and care
1. Why are my Chive seeds not germinating?
Chives grow well in full sunlight ( 6-8 hours) but can tolerate even partial sunlight ( 3-4 hours). If your seeds do not receive any sunlight at all, they will fail to germinate. Chive seeds also need rich and moist soil to grow well. Make sure you are keeping in mind all these conditions before sowing your chive seeds.
2. Why is my Chive plant turning yellow?
If your chive plant runs out of space, or some leaves turn older, they turn yellow. Apart from this, reasons like too much or too little water, improper temperature and light conditions can also lead to yellowing of chive leaves.
3. Why are my chives droopy?
Over or under - watering, insufficient light, inadequate temperature, poor potting mix or a pest infestation can all cause droopy chives. Determine the actual cause of your droopy chives before finding the appropriate solution.

Yes, Chives can be planted indoors in 12-14 inch sized plastic pots, ceramic pots, fibre pots or even grow bags.
When dried, chives tend to lose their flavour. We advise freezing them to preserve them.
Water your chive plant consistently throughout growing season. Moisten the soil evenly when watering.
Let's pass it on cleaner, better, and greener.
