Thriving Chives for Your Spring Herb Garden


This week's feature comes from out friends at Pepperpot Herbs who want us all to show some love to the humble chive. Chives are versatile, easy to grow, and thrive in the springtime conditions of the UK. Here's why they make an excellent choice for anyone starting a herb garden this spring:

Abundance in Spring

Chives start to flourish in April. They're one of the first herbs to come back after winter, making them a symbol of springtime freshness.

Culinary Versatility

Chives add a delicate onion flavour to dishes and are a staple in many recipes, including salads, soups, omelettes, and garnishes for various dishes. They're particularly popular in springtime recipes.

Easy to Grow in Pots

Chives are well-suited for container gardening, making them ideal for those with limited outdoor space. They require minimal care and can thrive on a sunny windowsill or balcony, making them accessible to a wide range of gardeners.

Edible Flowers

In addition to their flavourful leaves, chive plants produce edible purple flowers in spring. These flowers add colour to dishes and attract pollinators to the garden, supporting local biodiversity.
