Chervil (Anthriscus cerefolium) Herb Seeds

Anthriscus cerefolium, or Chervil is known as one of the 'fines herbes' with a delicate aniseed flavour. Sometimes it is also called garden chervil or French Parsley although it is originally from Asia, Europe and North Africa and has been grown as a culinary herb for centuries. 

Chervil needs a shady moist position, and prefers light rich soils. It will happily grow in a container in semi-shade, although will require midday shade. The plant itself has fine, fern-like delicate leaves, Tiny white flowers appear in Summer it can produce a large plant (1-2ft) when fully grown. Height: 30-60cm Spread: 30 – 60cm. 

Growing Instructions

Sow in pots or module trays to minimise root disturbance.Cover seed with vermiculite. Can be used as a 'cut-and-come-again' crop.
Height: 30-60cm Spread: 30 – 60cm

Herb Usage

Used in all manner of dishes, the leaves are particularly complementary to eggs, potatoes and fish. Due to the delicate nature of the herb, it is best added at the end of cooking, and when used in salads, it lifts a simple green salad to new heights, and is particularly pretty as a garnish.

Storing Chervil is only recommended if the leaves are frozen immediately after picking, as this locks in the subtle flavours.

    Had hoped that it might work despite it being out of date. Should have started to come up now, but doesn't want to germinate.
