Chive Seed Collection

Enjoy these two easy-to-grow full sun perennial herb seed varieties for planting in your home vegetable garden.

Common chives are a member of the allium family that also includes garlic, leeks and onions. Their mild flavor is reminiscent of these, without being overpowering. The purple flowers attract bees while being less attractive to other insects due to the sulfur content of their leaves.

Garlic chives are a hardy perennial with a flat, grass-like leaf with a delicious garlic flavor. This perennial herb produces mounds of plants with edible white flowers that attract pollinators to your garden. These seeds for planting in your family vegetable garden will help secure your family's food needs. Each package includes instructions for successful growing to help even a beginner gardener get started.

  • Zesty Chives - Add some flavor to your baked potatoes, salads, and more with grass-like herbs. Their mild onion and garlic flavors pair well with lemon, fish, vegetables, soups, salads, and meat. The flowers of both common and garlic chives are edible and add a beautiful touch your dishes.
  • Hardy Perennials - Garlic and common chives are both easy to grow small perennial herbs, producing mounds of plants. The garlic chives plant produces flat leaves with white blooms, while common chives have rounder leaves with purple blooms. Both will attract pollinators like bees and butterflies to the garden.
  • Sustainable Living - Planting your own herbs and vegetables is essential for a more self-sufficient and natural lifestyle. Both of these perennial herbs can be grown in pots in container gardens, outdoors, or indoors if given plenty of light. Ideal for growing in pots and indoor overwintering.
  • Easy to Grow - Seeds are packed in a beautiful paper packet with instructions for successful growing and germination in your own home garden. Each package also has instructions for saving seeds after harvest. Getting started is simple for both beginner and experienced gardeners.
  • Quality Seeds - Plant now or store for future growing seasons. These seeds will remain viable for years if stored in a cool dry location. Our safe, non-hybrid non-GMO heirloom seeds are always open-pollinated, naturally grown, untreated, and selected to ensure the best germination rates.


Heirloom seeds are the types of seeds your grandparents grew. These varieties have been passed down from generation to generation. They’re old reliable open-pollinated varieties that aren’t typically grown commercially. Instead, they have a rich history that predates modern breeding techniques.

You can learn more about open-pollinated, heirloom, and non-GMO seeds in our Survival Garden Training blog.

The majority of our seeds are sourced in the United States, with a few exceptions when the seed is difficult to source domestically. Whenever we do have to source outside of the US, we ensure our seeds are safe to grow, non-GMO varieties that meet our standards for germination and reliability.

No, we do not pre-treat our farmer seeds. All of our garden seeds for sale are untreated, open-pollinated, non-GMO, and heirloom varieties. They are kept in temperature-controlled cooler storage until they are packed and shipped to keep them pest and disease-free.

The seeds in our collections are specifically chosen from varieties that can be successfully grown from Zone 3 to Zone 10 USDA Hardiness Zones. However, individual varieties have specific needs to thrive in different environments. Each seed pack has optimal temperatures for germination and instructions on seed starting. Consult local frost dates to plan your garden and get the most out of your seeds.

Our seeds will generally last for 3-10 years if they are appropriately stored in a cool, dry place. However, we encourage you to grow your survival seeds within a year or two of purchase. This yields the best germination rates possible and also gives you more experience growing survival food now. At the end of the growing season, follow the instructions on the back of each packet for saving seeds for future gardens. These new seeds for survival will be more adapted to thrive in the growing conditions where you are.

We sell by weight for greater accuracy. We also pick the carefully chosen varieties to create the best survival seed vault possible, instead of aiming for a higher seed count by choosing only varieties with smaller seeds.
