Chive is an easy-to-grow perennial herb. This chive variety, Biggy, is an unusual variety with broad leaves that have a very pleasant aroma and a mild onion flavour. The leaves work great in fresh salads, egg dishes, potato dishes, and more. They can also be stored frozen. 

Chives prefer humus-rich chalky soils, preferably loamy soils, but it will grow in all soil types. Make sure not to let the herb bloom, since this takes energy from the general growth.
