Autumn flowers: Chives garlic and wood sorrel

Growing aromatic herbs
October 12, 2009

Nira flowersFinally the chives garlic (or Nira) started to bloom. I hope that these gorgeus little flowers will become seeds, because I want more plants of this delicious aromatic herb.
Nira seeds have a short viability, and should be used within a year.

Wood sorrelThe last month I planted some wood sorrel bulbs. I tought that the pot will remain empty until spring, but the plants are already born and now they're blooming too.
