How to grow chervil

Chervil is hard to find in supermarkets but it is a very useful herb and a good substitute for parsley. Use the fresh leaves in salads or soups, sauces, chicken and egg dishes or as a beautiful garnish.

Buy as a young plant and transfer outside to a large pot. Water well and place in partial shade.

Pick leaves as required.
