Chives – Polystar


Chives are probably one of the easiest perennial herbs to grow in either pots or in the herb garden. They are very versatile plants and are often grown for both culinary and ornamental purposes. Their mild onion flavoured leaves can be used for salads, soups, omelettes and many other dishes. The garlic flavoured variety is also a popular addition to some of the more exotic dishes. The delicate purple flowers are edible and make a nice salad decoration or garnish.
