Allium Schoenoprasum, Chives

Did you know that Chives are actually the smallest edible species of onion?  A herbaceous perennial with spiky thin grass looking leaves and small pale purple star shaped flowers that attract bees but repel insects.

Excellent in fish, potatoes, salads and soups; and with cheese and for those old enough to remember the Philadelphia ‘chive’ advert!

Derives its name from the French word, civa, and thence from Cepa the Latin word for onion.

Plant position and soil: Likes a sunny spot/partial shade in moist but well drained soil.
