Common Chives (Allium schoenoprasum) I bet your grandmother had a go-to supply of Common Chives within 20-30 steps from the kitchen...well, mine certainly did. A wonderful mild hint of onion, this easy to grow perennial is a must for your culinary desire. Cut the long thin leaves for salads, potatoes, soups, meat and Mexican dishes. Start early indoors or outdoors after danger of frost. One of our chive blocks is located next to the house in a large 4 x 12 foot raised planter year round. They are one of the first greens up in the spring!
