We love chives, our chive plant came with us from our last house many years ago. It was one of the first plants to hit the ground here. Chives are easier to take care of than lettuce, and they are very easy going.
Every time I’ve done chives it has been from a plant that someone was happy to be rid of. I’ve never tried them from seed
Simply trim of or snap off what you want to use or take to dry. Make sure to leave some so the plant can continue to gather energy and food.
The chive puts up a very pretty purple flower that is really great to look at.
