I cant seem to get my chives to grow upward. I try to keep the soil moist with out over watering. I have had them in full sun and now they are in partial sun. What could be wrong?

Chives should not flop over if they are getting adequate sunshine. If they are floppy, they need to be harvested. Cutting the chives back will encourage healthy new growth and with at least 4 hours of direct sunshine, the new foliage should stand upright. Enjoy your chives!
