Chervil Herb Seeds

Botanical name: Anthriscus cerefolium

Syn. French Parsley

Chervil is a low growing herb to 30 cm high with a mild aniseed taste; it is a close relative of parsley. It forms a rosette of sweetly scented, delicate ferny foliage and is ideal for container growing. Chervil thrives in cool conditions and does not tolerate heat; maintain soil moisture to prevent bolting. Used in egg dishes, soups, and with fish. Chervil is one of the four herbs in ‘fines herbes’ used in French cooking.

  • Depth: Press the seed lightly into soil to 5 mm; it needs light to germinate
