Habitat and Description


Growing Chervil
CULTURAL REQUIREMENTS

Chervil will grow in any soil but dislikes being too wet although it does need water, it won't like being in badly drained soil.

Sow the seeds in rows 1 foot (30cm) apart and thin plants to 1 foot (30cm) apart.

Sow the winter chervil in late summer and the spring chervil from late winter onwards - the best results seem to be 2 days before a full moon - don't ask me why, because I don't know.

Choose a sunny spot for your winter chervil and a semi-shady spot for your summer chervil.

Remove the flowers from most of the plants before they open and keep watered.

The plants will self seed if one or two plants are allowed to flower.
