I'm Teca Thompson, Farm To Table Chef. Today, we're talking about planting chives and chives spacing. So, I've made four rows, about for to six inches apart, that's the space you want between the rows. Now, we're going to plant three seeds per every inch of row. So, I'm just going to take m handy garden stake; I'm going to make about a quarter inch indent in the top of the row every inch. I'm going to get my chive seeds and I'm going to place three in every hole, and so on down my row. I'm going to cover them up, tamping lightly to make sure there's no air pockets and then, I'm going to lightly water and keep moist. In about two weeks, they will start to sprout, in which case, you want to thin them, always picking the strongest and biggest plants and that way, it'll give them plenty of room to grow into healthy beautiful chives. I'm Teca Thompson, and that is how to plant chives and chive spacing. Thank you for watching.
