However, this is also a plant that has escaped out into the wild. If you look out into any open field, or wooded area you will see long tufts of chives popping up. They thrive in the cool spring and start growing vigorously in the spring way before the warm season grasses start growing, so this time of year they are easy to spot.
Obviously this is an edible plant. Especially on a baked potato.
Chives are something I want to grow for my herb garden. I wonder if it would be safe to simply pop some of the bulbs out of the ground of Fairmount Park and place them in my garden?
