A wonderful combination of easy to grow onion flavoured leaves to add to salads and sauces, and beautiful purple flowers to decorate the garden (that can also be eaten). Chives are easy to grow from seed, and once chives are established, extra plants can be propagated by digging up and dividing the plants in autumn. Chives perform better in soils kept moist.
