This perennial member of the onion family is undemanding and easy to grow herb, returning year after year, and attracting bees and butterflies to its pretty pink blooms.
Chives are an essential addition to the herb garden. Their leaves and edible flowers make them indispensable for garnishing potato salad, soups and other savoury dishes. Chives are ideal for edging paths and borders and also make an excellent companion plant, deterring pests such as carrot root fly.

Direct sow chive seed outdoors from early spring. Grow chives in a well prepared seedbed in full sun. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2") in drills 30cm apart. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 23cm (9") apart.
