Chervil is a hardy annual herb which can be used almost all year round. Its rich savoury flavour makes it a good accompaniment to fish and meat dishes and it is also part of the classic French herb mixture "fines herbes" (along with tarragon, chives and parsley). The leaves can be used as parsley substitute when adding a garnish to dishes. It is also used in folk medicine as an aid to digestion.
Sowing advice: For best results, seeds are best sown directly into the ground where required in the spring, autumn or in a winter greenhouse. It needs to be kept cool and moist otherwise it tends to bolt. Regular harvesting of leaves also helps to prevent bolting.
