How long has it been since you sowed the chive seeds? They usually take about 2 weeks to germinate.
No problem starting more seeds, because it takes quite a few plants to make a nice bunch.
Good luck on your chive seeds.

I sowed them more than two weeks ago. From the bunch I sowed back then, only one leave is coming up. I also sowed a bunch approximately 2 months ago, but non of them sprouted. So, yesterday I tried again. We shall see what happens.

I bought a pot of garlic chives last year. They made it through our freezes just fine and I was able to divide them this spring. We've used them just like regular chives - omelets, soups, savory scones, etc. However, I did break off the flower stalks (once they were done blooming) to prevent a plethora of volunteers.

Garlic chives grows as a 'weed' in my lawn every spring. I mow them down, and always appreciate the fragrance of fresh mowed garlic chives. For some reason, it never dawned on me that I could eat them! Woohoo! (I don't use any pesticides or herbicides in my yard.)
