Chives are from the onion family and grow from a clump of small bulbs each of which produce long hollow tubular leaves continuously thought summer.

This perennial herb likes well-drained rich, slightly acid soil and lots of sun with plenty of water.

The leaves are used fresh, cut up finely and are a favourite in Asian cooking such as stir-fries, dumplings and can be a substitute for scallions or garlic, especially for people who find garlic  or onions too strong.

As they can lose their flavour and become tough with cooking they are best added just before serving.
