about chives

Chives are a popular member of the onion family. Chives are the mildest of all the onions. This herb is native to Britain, Northern Europe and North America. They are the easiest to grow fresh herbs used for beautiful cooking.

in the records

Medieval gardeners often planted Chives around the borders for both decoration and to deter harmful insects. It was thought hanging bunches of chives around a house could also ward off evil.
