Chervil is native to Europe and this variety has an anise-like taste. It is often planted to repel slugs! It attracts desirable insects and pollinators so is very garden friendly. The plants are small and as delicate as the flavor. It has some medicinal properties. It is carminative and diuretic as well as blood purifying. If the leaves are cut, they will keep coming back. The seeds should be planted directly into the ground rather than in pots for future transplanting. Chervil is one of the herbs used Herbes de Provence.
