Chives are the truffle of aromatics. Not only are they classy and elevate any dish, but they also have a unique taste and smell.
The aroma of chives is highly valued by many cooks. Often used to give flavor to tasty dips, soups, baked potatoes... you name it! Belonging to the onion family, chives aroma glows when applied in the last minute, once it's cooked it loses all its precious flavor.
If you want to preserve it for a longer time, we recommend you to freeze it.

We avoid the use of soil thanks to our growing medium composed of coconut fiber and peat, which allows us to recreate the perfect growing conditions.
The coconut fibre plug is a growing medium that holds the ideal amunts of water and humidity for plants to grow and roots to develop.
The porosity of the plug promotes root growth. Keep an eye on any roots sticking out of the sides of the plug, they are a good sign! They indicate that your plants will grow healthy and strong.
