    Anthriscus cerefolium

    Chervil is an heirloom herb that was most likely introduced to European herb gardening by the Romans. This popular culinary herb, closely related to Parsley, has become an indispensable herb plant in the kitchen, and a classic among herb plants in French cuisine. Chervil produces flat, light-green, lacy leaves with a hint of anise, and enhances the flavor of chicken, fish, vegetables, eggs and salads. A sprig in a bottle of white wine vinegar will transform your salads!

    Used as a medicinal herb throughout the Middle Ages, Chervil was used to treat everything from hiccups to high blood pressure. Chervil also contains high concentrations of natural flavonoids which aid the body's ability to regenerate cells and absorb Vitamin C. When infused in a tea and left to cool, it can also make a potent eyewash.

    Because Chervil goes to bolt so quickly once the summer heats up, it is sometimes best to succession plant this dainty herb. The plant's long tap root makes transplanting tricky business, so plant in a partially shady, moist but not wet, area to slow bolting.

    Chervil makes a great companion herb plant in any container, and produces tiny white flowers in mid-summer.

    Bloom: White, blooms mid Summer

    Uses: Related to parsley but more delicate, chervil has a faint taste of anise. It is commonly used to season mild-flavored dishes. It is particularly popular in French cuisine, a delightful addition to omelets, salads, and soups.

    Tips: Put those pesticides down! Chervil can be used to repel slugs. Make sure to prune often during the summer to prevent bolting, as Chervil will go to seed quickly in the summer heat. Plant in a cool, moist place or in a container so that you can move as needed, because it does not transplant well.

    Chervil - Beautiful addition to an Herb Garden June 15, 2014
    Reviewer: Julia Bounds from Titus, AL United States  
    Though I'm not sure what "bolting" is, I have had Chervil growing in containers for three years.  It's a beautiful herb that grows in the shape of a Bonsai tree with a full canopy.  Only after several years has this lovely plant finally produced tiny, lovely white flowers...then began to fall over.  Now sure what to do now, but I have her propped carefully and am investigating.
