Common Problems

1. Why is my herb dying?
Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other infections. Spay appropriate fungicides or pesticides as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted. Watch out for snails and slugs.

2. Why is my herb not growing?
Herbs are cool season plants. They struggle to grow in hot climatic situations. Also waterlogging in the soil is also harmful to plants. Use well drained potting soil for growing your herbs.

3. How tall does chervil grow?
Chervil (Anthriscus cerefolium) is a cool season annual and grows anywhere between 12 and 24 inches tall. Its appearance resembles parsley. Chervil blooms in small white flowers that form umbels, May through July. However, flowering turns the leaves bitter.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I plant chervil?

Chervil should be planted in spring or autumn. If planted in mid-summer it tends to get too much sun and heat and go straight to seed. It prefers the cool and will do best when planted in an area of partial shade that stays relatively damp. The soil should be humus rich and fertile.

What is chervil used for?

Chervil is one of the herbs used to make fines herbes (the others are parsley, tarragon, and chives), a delicate herb blend used extensively in French cooking. Chervil is particularly delicious with eggs—either added to an omelet or sprinkled on scrambled eggs.

Can you freeze chervil?

Chervil does not dry well as it loses much of its flavor. If you wish to preserve it, freezing works best. To freeze, blanch stems in boiling water for one minute, then chill in ice water. Alternatively, you can purée fresh chervil with a little water and freeze in an ice cube tray.
