£2.30£4.50

Delicious and easy to grow, compact plants producing an abundance of edible stems and flowers. Without a doubt one the most versatile herbs! Chives are so easy to grow and can be added to just about any dish. We put them in soups, salads, omelettes, stir fries, etc. The flowers are also delicious and make a very attractive addition to summer salads, with their mild onion flavour.

Chives are perennial which means once you have them established you’ll never need to sow them again. They can be propagated equally easily by division or from seed.
