|Garlic Chives (Allium tuberosum)|
What a wonderful garden plant, with so many uses!

|A beautiful banner too! |
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

|This reminded me that I forgot to dig up a clump of garlic chives when I was at our other house! Better add that to the list! One of my favorite garden plants, because of the smell. Besides smelling wonderful, it is also very pretty!|
A perfect banner, Dave! And yes, I can smell it!

|Great banner. |
This is the first banner I have seen that I instantly knew the name, botanical and common, without having to double-check.
If you cover some of the plants with a tall black plastic pot you can blanch the greens until they turn white/almost white and they are easier to digest. I learned this from my friend PlantSister.

|I have to admit that I've never tasted them! I really wasn't sure if they were edible or not! |

|Don't have any as yet but I'm convinced I should add them to the list! They make a beautiful banner, Dave.|
