How to Harvest Wild Chive Seeds

This is a super quick video showing you how to harvest wild chives seeds. If you didn’t know, I’m basically obsessed with wild chives. It’s a flower you can eat, but also pretty??! I die. I love them! Since all of the wild chives are dying off (cry face), I took some blossoms to gather the seeds and see if I can grow them in my house at the end of the summer.

Look how pretty they are:

Now look at them…not as pretty and bleached out by the sun, but so useful!

I just pop off some heads, and store them in a mesh tea ball to catch the seeds. Make sure you choose a blossom that is still mostly closed, otherwise most of the seeds will have already fallen out.
