Planting Instructions:


Soil Preparation:

Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.


Winter Chervil is a cool-season crop and does well in the cool temperatures of Spring and Fall. Soil temperature should be at least 55F for seeds to sprout. Sow outdoors 4-6 weeks before last Spring frost or 6-8 weeks before first Frost in Fall. Sow in loose, fertile, moist, well-draining soil in full sun. Plant at 1/4 inch deep and cover thinly with soil.  Plant 3 seeds spaced 6 inches apart within the rows. Keep watered. Provide afternoon shade if >70F to reduce bolt-risk. Water frequently. Cold-hardy annual. Plants are hardy to about 15F. May cover with mulch in the winter to prevent risk of damage from cold snaps.

Planting Depth: 1/4 inch
Within-Row Spacing:
6 inches
Between-Row Spacing:
12 - 18 inches


Care During the Season:

Watering: Water plants moderately. If the soil moisture is low, water but avoid waterlogging soil. Try to avoid wetting foliage to prevent diseases.

Weeding: Keep plants free of weeds, which rob weak root systems of nutrients and moisture.

Insecticides: Insecticides may be used to protect plants. Bt-based insecticides and sulfur are organic options that can be used for prevention. Sevin is a synthetic option. Sulfur also has fungicidal properties and helps in controlling many diseases. Before using a pesticide, please read the label and always follow cautions, warnings and directions.

Diseases: Disease can happen in cloudy, damp weather. Check plants daily and treat with an approved fungicide if diseases do appear. Neem oil, sulfur, and other fungicides are available for use. Please always follow label directions.


Chervil can be harvested at any stage of maturity. Fully mature leaves may be harvested when dark green and full-length, about 10" long. Cut individual outside leaves  Harvest regularly for continuous growth.
