Plant Features

Chive Herb Plants produce leaves that offer a mild onion flavor that makes an excellent addition to egg dishes, cheeses, salads, soups, over sour cream on baked potatoes, and in butter sauces. They are best used fresh. Chives are high in vitamins C and A and calcium, and possess antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. If you don’t care to see the clusters of pinkish-purple flowers that will appear atop the leaves, cut the plant back to the ground a few times during the growing season to keep yourself a fresh supply of leaves. Chives grows best in full sun locations with moist, well-drained soil. It can be grown indoors next to a south facing window. Indoor plants should be watered just as the potting mix starts to dry.

Our Chive Herb Plants are grown with a commitment to natural methods, ensuring they're healthy and robust. Guaranteed to arrive alive and thriving!

Chive Companion Plants: Parsley, Tomatoes, Peppers

Pretty and Tasty

Arrived VERY well packaged. We followed the instructions on soil and fertilizer. Potted indoors in 6” pots. Within three weeks we are using in cooking. Phenomenal growth!

Beautiful plant

This plant arrived in perfect condition and took off right away. I am thrilled to have fresh chives in the middle of the city, right on my doorstep. Will be purchasing again next year.

Awesome Chive plants

I absolutely love this company. I have bought several plants from them now. They always come well packaged and healthy. These chive plants are no exception. They are doing well planted near my tomatoes...keeping some of those pests away. :0) Thanks so much!!!

Gold standard

From Irene | March 19, 2020

Nice addition to herb garden

The chive herb plant came in good condition and has taken well to both the pot I started it in and the ground that it is now in. They are fairly easy to care for once planted. I look forward to seeing the tall flowers that bloom for now they add grassy like texture to the garden and I'm sure they sort of keep pets away.

From Michelle | August 28, 2019

Just what I wanted

I didn't want to start perennial herbs from seed, since seed packets have 500 seeds, and I don't need 500 chive plants. I ordered chives from GrowJoy and I am amazed at, not only the quality of the plant, but also at the packaging, which is better than anything else that I've seen from any other company.

From Susan | May 17, 2019


Shipping was perfect.Planted in my garden immediately and cant wait till they are ready to eat!

From Gloria | May 09, 2019

Chive alive

Is still doing well a couple of weeks after it was planted. I am curious how well it will do thru the summer.

great chives plants and delivered well

Happy Chives Planter

My order was received alive (very good sized) and very well packed. They have been planted in containers on my balcony and are flourishing. I have been ordering from GrowJoy for at least four years and have always been pleased with the results. Last year I placed my order a bit late and some of the herbs I wanted were no longer available. I ordered from two other sources and was extremely disappointed in the results. The plants were small and sickly looking and a couple did not survive.

From Virginia V | May 14, 2015

Excellent Condition & Size

It seems Chives always do well and these are no exception. I ordered several different plants and all of them arrived within the time frame promised for delivery. They all arrived in excellent condition and a nice size. I highly recommend GrowJoy.

From Max | May 08, 2015

From David | May 16, 2014


The Chive plants arrived in a timely manner and were the most carefully packed plants I have ever received from any on line vendor. They have now been in the ground for a bit more than a week and are a happy, healthy addition to my herb garden!

From walter | April 24, 2014

Garden mom on Chives

Rarely do you receive what you see in a photo. With this I got exactly what was advertised. The plant is doing very well.

From Monica | April 23, 2014

Herb Plant

The Chives Herb plants arrived very well.

From EVELYN | April 15, 2013

What a great experience

I ordered 10 herb plants as my first order. They arrived just 3 days after they sent me the shipment email. Packaging of their plants was fantastic unlike other plants I ordered by mail from well known retailers and the fragrance was overwhelming. Fantastic!

From Dian | April 08, 2013


Healthy little herb plants arrived safe and sound. Growing nicely in my kitchen

From Sarah | November 12, 2012

beatiful clumps of Chives

they came in wonderful condition - packed exceptionally well - and shipped so fast!

From Valerie | July 14, 2012

I am a Fan

This is the second year I have purchased herb plants from GrowJoy and it will not be my last. The packaging is meticulous (individual partitions for each plant). The plants were considerably healthier and larger than those I previously purchased online from a large Home Improvement Store. The plants are thriving in containers on my balcony.

From Virginia V | June 30, 2012

Very Satisfied

The Chives Herb plants I ordered were wonderful. Very satisfied.

From Virginia V | June 19, 2012

delicious herb

The Chives Herb plant is easy to grow. Great plant!

From Mary | August 01, 2011


My Chives arrived alive, even though they had to ride in the back of a delivery truck, heated by the sun, that kill most of my other ordered plants.
