If you`re wandered around our Kitchen Garden recently, you may have spotted a chives flowers. We grown chives for their leaves, which we use for culinary purposes as a flavoring herb.
Chives are a perennial plant, growing to 30-50 cm tall. They are often consumed raw. The entire part of the plant can be eaten. Even the flowers. Chives are low in calories but high in beneficial nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Chives will grow perfectly well in a position in full sun or in partial shade. They grow best in a fertile, moist but well-drained soil. The more regularly they`re cut, the more new leaves they will produce.
