The delicate onion flavour of chives makes this perennial a perfect addition to soups, omelettes, salads and cheese dishes. It is an easy to grow and quick to germinate, cut-and-come-again herb with pretty mauve flowers that are also edible and make a colourful and tasty salad garnish. Chives are an excellent companion plant attracting butterflies and bees.

Indoor Sowing: Sow under glass from March to June. Sow the seeds thinly into trays or pots of damp compost and cover lightly. Prick out and pot on seedlings when large enough to handle. Transplant outside allowing 10cm between plants. 
Outdoor Sowing: Direct sow from early spring. Choose a rich soil in sun or part shade and sow sparingly into shallow drills, cover lightly with more soil and water well.
Growing instructions: Cut the leaves as required with scissors. Keep well-watered and snip off flowers to keep plants producing new leaves. In late summer after flowering cut all leaves down to about 5cm above ground level to encourage a new flush of young growth.
