I have chives taking over my flower beds, does anyone have any advice in killing them, I tried Round Up, but it’s not working
Here is some information to help you with your chives. https://www.hunker.com/13406298/how-to-kill-chive-plants
Try digging them up - be sure to get the bulbs.
Can you dig them up and give them away?
haha, you'd be surprised. We have several chive plants, and have given away to friends who want them. But a heads up on how they can spread is always nice. Good luck!
To kill chives, you will have to dig them out of the soil. Be
sure that you get the entire bulb or the chives will grow back.
I agree. Digging them up is the answer. You can drench the soil with water to make them easier to remove first.
Hi Jeannie, sorry you have chives growing in your flower bed, they are nasty. Get ready to dig, looks like the only way to get rid of them . Good luck

Apr 4, 2018 - A thin trowel or similar tool is best for digging bulbs in grass, and you may sacrifice a small amount of grass to get rid of the chives. Water the area the day before to soften the ground. Don't attempt to pull the plants because the tiny bulblets will break off and spread.
Dig them up and give them away. I have them growing in my beds on purpose along with onions = free pest control. Many people love chives to cook with, including me.
AGreed - just have to dig out the bulbs!
Digging is the only way I've been able to get them out.
Hi Jeannie: Once you get chives, the entire neighbourhood has chives :( The only thing you can do is dig them up. Put aside a week or two if you have a bunch :) I have them all over the place. The best time to dig them up is after a heavy rain or watering. That way, you can use a dandelion fork to get under the bulb and pull it up. I put some in a bucket with soil, to use as garnish, but boy do those things spread. I got them from a neighbours yard. Just 2 or 3 showed up a few years ago, but now a whole bunch :( It seems like a losing battle. Good luck, and put them on baked potatoes or in mashed potatoes :) Might as well use them :)
Can you just dig them up? And don't let them flower, get at them before the flowers come, because they can set new seed.
