A very popular and versatile perennial herb with mild, onion-tasting leaves which are great for garnishing or flavouring dishes. Rounded umbels of purple flowers appear in summer which are very attractive too. They can also be added to salads either whole or pick the petals and sprinkle over the top. Grow in free draining soil in full sun. Good for a pot.

Sow a pinch of seed to a small pot from March to April on a windowsill or greenhouse. Alternatively sow in the veg plot in drills 0.5cm deep
