Chives divided and potted on, akind donation from a regular volunteer.
These will die down for the winter and then come back with vigour next spring.
Chives can be grown easily In pots on a balcony or a small space. When cutting for use never cut the whole plant in one go.

Composting with the Community
Hoxton Trust Community Garden is an Organic eco-friendly project actively
supporting biodiversity with its local community. We compost, recycle, reuse all our green waste material and
increasingly the suitable food waste for local people and projects.
We plan to build five new composting units to enable us to properly
improve and provide this service and in return to offer the compost free
to local people who participate.
Our composting units will be made of recycled and FSC certified timber
and constructed by local people.
As a part of this project we will run some free workshops to introduce
people to the basics of composting and its benefits for the wider
environment.
For any information on composting contact
