I wish I could help you, Susie, but my chives are outside. I know my neigbour used to take her chives inside in auntumn before the freeze, so I guess it does grow easily...Good luck! :)

Lucie,

Do you have them in your garden or a container outside??I have the room and since I haven`t raised any herbs I would like to get an idea on the best way.TIA:)

Hi Susie:wave:
I've only grown them outdoors and I bet they are just as hardy grown indoors. I love 'em as they grow & grow as you snip them. They are great in & on just about anything.
Outdoors I grow most of my herbs in whiskey barrels that are placed in the sun by the front door for easy harvesting.:)

I have them in the garden and they have grown and grown and expanded from year to year. Last year, I put some chives in a wooden container and it wasn't a sucess. Maybe it's because I didn't water them enough..I'm not sure, but in the ground, mine were better. I hope that helps, but let me tell you, I'm no expert in gardening... :)

I planted chives this year, but the cat dug up all my seeds when he used the "giant litter box" in the yard! grrrr.
