Herbs, Chives 'Naomy' (Allium schoenoprasum)
I always have a patch of chives in the garden. This is an excellent flavoured variety with delicate fine leaves good for both cooking and as a garnish. Essential vegetable garden plant and cooking ingredient giving a mild onion flavour to many dishes such as salads, soups, omelettes. It is especially delicious with beetroot, peas, fresh broad beans and green beans. This is an excellent selected quick growing strain.
