Sometimes called French parsley, chervil is a leafy annual herb that looks a bit like parsley but with a finer, more delicate stem. The leaves are delicate, but filled with a strong aniseed flavour that goes well with rich, creamy sauces or as a rub for poultry. It can also be used to flavour salads.

How to grow chervil at home

Plant your chervil in a cool, shaded location that has a well, draining soil . If you put your herb in a sunny location, you will risk bleaching the leaves and making them bitter. Water the chervil well to keep the soil moist, but not wet.

How do you harvest chervil?

Your chervil will be able to harvest once it produces enough leaves. To harvest, just remove the leaves you need.

What are plug plants?

Plug plants are very young plants that come ready to go in the ground. They are grown in single units in modular trays and be either seedlings or cuttings. Buying plug plants lets you fill your beds and borders easily, and in a way that is stress-free for your plant since it allows for little root disturbance.

How do you plant a plug plant?

When you first get your plant home, remove any packaging except for the pot. Place the plant in a warm and sunny space for 2-4 hours to let them recover and acclimatise. You should try to plant your plug the same day if you can. To do this, dig a hole in your desired place that is slightly larger than the root ball and soil around it and put the plug inside. Cover with the existing earth and press down lightly. Water well for the first week to help the plant establish itself and feed with an all-purpose feed after 3 weeks.
