What are the growing conditions for chives?

Chives like good drainage in a rich moist soil. The require full sun. If you want to grow some on your windowsill next winter make sure you allow the potted plants to freeze for about a month before taking it indoors. Failure to give the plants this cold rest will result in the plants gradually petering out.
