Thanks. I bought some Chives today, along with Thyme and Sage. Are they all likely to flower this summer?
Sage and Rosemary can't be split ( unless the SM has been extremely generous and there is obviously more than one plant in the pot ).
It may not be as exciting but it is often cheaper and less problematic to propagate in this way
Only joking, I’m sure it will.
So long as your thyme is in free draining soil with some grit, in full sun, it should flower. Some of mine have buds just beginning to open now. Depends a bit on the variety.
Ditto to sage - it doesn’t like sitting in wet, badly draining soil and like a lot of sun and warmth.
Chives don’t mind it cooler and damper, even very damp and can happily live at the edge of a pond, almost bog-like.
Mine are all in bud and quite behind this year (normally by now the flowers would all be open).
If your clump is very young/small, you may not get many flower stalks forming, but I seem to recall mine flowering from year 1.
