Answer: Some people enjoy the appearance of the chive flowers (I like the globe shape) and depending where it's planted, it can add visually to the garden. If you let it flower, you can collect seeds to plant next year, or to use in a seed exchange with friends. Some chives will flower again later in the season if you cut them off.
Some greens taste bitter once they go to flower, but I don't think that's a problem, since the chive, in my opinion, is still edible. And by the way, so is the flower! Try tossing it in a salad! Thanks for using our database.
