Chive 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. We grow our Chive plants organically.

"Nice addition to herb garden"

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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.
