Winter Chervil has feathery leaves with a delicate anise flavor that is lovely as a garnish. It is often used in mild cooking such as fish and chicken dishes and for béarnaise sauce. It is a classic French herb. Unfortunately, the flavor is lost when the leaves are dried, so enjoy them fresh. Harvest leaves before it flowers for best flavor.
Winter Chervil is a cool weather crop and can be sown in succession until summer. It needs plenty of light to germinate.
Height 20 inches. Spacing 6-12 inches.
Sowing Winter Chervil Seeds
