Green garlic, or young garlic, comes out in the springtime -- this time of year, you could substitute scallion stems.

by scallion stems do you mean the green tops? Could I use chives??

Yes, the green tops. Chives would work well too -- I'd use a little more of them to compensate for the fact that they're smaller.
