Description

German garlic (Allium ssp. senescens montanum, Syn. Allium lusitanicum) is an old German cottage garden plant. This bulbous plant grows wild on mountain meadows (hence the name mountain garlic), but is also cultivated in the regional home garden. It
is mostly cultivated for the small bulbs. They have a sweet taste with peppery scent and a hint of garlic. The leaves can be used just like chives, and the plant is therefore also called broadleaf chives.

Package with 100 German garlic seeds

Growing instructions

German garlic can be sown outdoors, but we recommend indoor preculture starting in early spring. If you want to collect as many bulbs as possible (broadleaf chives produces more than one bulb per plant), you should avoid harvesting the leaves as not to stress the plant unnecessarily.
