Heirloom Herb

Chives grows as tufts of grassy, tubular leaves shaped much like miniature onion leaves. Use the delicate mild onion flavoured leaves in salads, soups, stews, omelettes and dips. Plants grow in clusters to 15 cm (6") high and produce pretty, edible, purple ball-shaped flowers about 2.5 cm (1") in diameter. Often gardeners find chives spreading throughout the garden easily on their own. Despite this, chives can be fussy germinators with the seed sometimes taking much longer to emerge than expected. While it often spreads from established plants by self-seeding, it is not considered invasive. Perennial hardy to Zone 3.
