Anthriscus cerefolium



A hardy annual to 45 cm tall, looking similar to parsley.

Rapid in spring and autumn. Occasionally dies down in summer.


Fresh leaves can be harvested and used like parsley in the kitchen. Seeds can also be used for culinary purposes (eg: flavouring vinegar).

Chervil is one of the "fines herbes" used in savoury dishes.

Curled leaved varieties are the most popular, for use as garnishes. 


Prefers filtered sunlight, fertile soil and reasonable well drained conditions.

Does not like extremes of heat or cold, hence it is best grown as a quick crop in spring or autumn.


Propagate by seed sown in spring or late summer.
