Chives

The chives in the bed in the front garden have become rather rampant.  I ended up chopping them as they’d fallen over, crushing my new rosemary, and the flowers had gone over.  They have some new flowers on the way so I didn’t chop those stems.

I was thinking of getting some chives for my herb garden but wondered whether I can divide this bunch instead?  If this would work, how would I go about doing it?

I ended up putting the chopped chives in the compost bin.  They don’t keep and I still have loads in the rose garden.
