Chives grow well in containers or in gardens as a pretty border plant. They have tall, green, grass-like leaves with purple pom-pom flowers. Harvest continuously from early summer until frost. Finely chopped tops of this versatile kitchen herb adds a delicious mild onion flavour to almost any recipe.

J'utilise beaucoup la ciboulette dans la sauce vinaigrette, les omelettes, le fromage blanc...
Les tiges fleuries sont dures, aussi je les coupe régulièrement.
