As with the other items ordered from you, this is a good well grown plant, and I look forward to enjoying using the chives on my salads and dressings, thank you.

Garlic Chives (Allium tuberosum) Herb in 1 litre Pot
Also known as Chinese Chives, Allium tuberosum or garlic chives are an attractive summer-flowering addition to the herb garden. The less well recognised chive, garlic chives are an excellent and highly under-rated addition to a culinary herb garden.
Garlic chives will grow in any soil conditions, and although they prefer sunny positions, they will tolerate some shade. Growing to 1ft in the leaf and 2ft in the flower, they are a beautiful specimen when in full bloom, which is usually in late summer. The flowers are a white, star-like profusion above the leaf, and when grown in numbers, form a beautiful mass of white.
The fine green flat leaves have a garlic/onion taste, and can be used to add flavour to salads, soft cheeses and Eastern dishes. The seeds are also edible, and can be pressed for oil, sprouted or eaten as they are.
