Frise Fin Ou Double Chervil-100 Seeds


In stock

Traditional French heirloom variety. Curly leaves look soft and thin a little bit like parsley. A delicate parsley-like plant with a hint of licorice aroma. Its delicate flavour disappears when cooked so add it just prior to serving or add raw leaves fresh to salads. Chervil likes to grow in partial shade and cool-season. Direct-sow chervil seeds in spring or late summer. Harvest flowers just before they open, and harvest foliage before flowering begins. If allowed to flower and go to seed, it may self sow.

Season & Zone Season: Cool season Exposure: Sun or part-shade Zone: 2-10

Timing Start seeds indoors or direct sow in spring. Direct sow in summer and protect plants from midday sun for a winter crop – chervil is quite hardy. Keep transplanting to a minimum, as chervil develops a delicate taproot.

Starting Sow seeds 5mm-1cm deep, and space plants 23-30cm apart.

Growing Plants will be ready for cutting 6-8 weeks after sowing. It’s probably best to grow chervil in relatively damp soil in partial shade, as plants will bolt in hot mid-summer weather. Transplanting may also trigger bolting. Cover with a frost cloth or move to greenhouse in winter, and it will just keep growing until it blooms the following spring.

Harvest Begin harvesting as needed 6-8 weeks after sowing, or when plants are 10cm tall. Drying kills nearly all the flavour of the leaves, so freezing is best for long term storage.

Companion Planting Chervil is an excellent companion for Brassicas, lettuce, and radishes, but does best in part shade. Try growing some between rows of tall cabbages and kale. Chervil helps to repel slugs.
