All hail the lowly but prolific chive! Delicious in salads, as a condiment, and an attractive ornamental, chives come back year after year.
Available in storeClose
Chives are one of those herbs that are used in only small amounts as an addition to salads or as a garnish for soups or baked potatoes. Those packets of chives that are sold in the stores are often more than one needs, so why not grow your own? Chives are a reliable perennial, growing strong all summer and right up until freeze, then dies down until the next spring. Grow it in pots or in the ground as an edible ornamental, attracting people and bees alike. Chives are one of our favorite herb pot candidates, adding height as well as pretty lilac flowers most of the summer and requires little care. Give it sunshine, regular watering, and let chives do its thing.
