7. Grow easy care chivesThere are many good reasons for having chives (Allium schoenoprasum) – common or garlic varieties – in your herb garden: they’re hardy, easy care, can be grown throughout the year, have pretty flowers in summer and can be used in virtually any style of cooking. 
Seedlings are usually always available in garden centres or you can sow seed in spring directly into the ground. Chive plants need free-draining soil and a sunny position. Remember to cut off flowers to keep plants producing new leaves.TIP: Chives are also great for container cultivation.

A fun little project for the first day out in the garden is to make a set of pretty plant markers. Sure, you can just write on Popsicle sticks with a Sharpie, but if you want to get fancy, try painting plain garden stakes with whatever leftover paint you have at hand, and then use alphabet stamps to label them.
