Fragrant flowered garlic Chives (Allium senescens) Herb in 1L Pot

A hardy perennial, chives are reliable and attractive plants in their own right, notwithstanding their excellent attributes as a culinary herb. Chives are easy to grow and will tolerate almost any decent soil conditions. Dying back completely in the winter, chives are one of the earliest to brave the spring, and put on growth quickly and efficiently, thus allowing for an extended period of leaf production.

Allium senescens is an unusual ornamental onion with thin, strap-like foliage that tends to twist. It produces long-lasting pink or lilac flowers in mid to late summer and is a fabulous addition to the herb garden as a spectacle of colour. Chives grow well in most situations, and will flourish in pots, and can be cut down to within 3cm of the ground when harvesting. In autumn or spring, larger clumps can be split and replanted.

Herb Usage

Both the leaves and flowers of Chives make an excellent accompaniment to most food, and the leaves are especially complementary to eggs and cheese, lifting a simple omelette to new heights, while also serving as an excellent garnish. Salads and tomatoes are improved with the addition of chives, as they give a mild onion flavour.
