Major kitchen herb in Europe,
also popular in salad and mesclun mixes.
Looks like a flat-leaved parsley, but more delicate in looks and flavor.
Mild, fresh tastes outstanding in salad, eggs, vegetables, garnish.
Likes cool weather-makes a good companion to lettuce and cabbage, and appreciates some shade as the season goes on.
Just press onto soil and keep moist-needs light to germinate. Not at all fussy-try some under trees or shrubs. Strongly recommended.
BOTANICAL NAME: Anthriscus cerefolium
Sow seed 9" apart directly into garden from early Spring onwards. Start in pots or in place-does not transplant well. The seed is slow to germinate and requires watering when it is establishing itself. Light dependent germinator; press onto damp soil or cover very lightly. Likes partial shade-under shrubs or among taller crops is ideal. Remove flowers to promote leaf growth. (May leave some for re-seeding; will reseed each year if undisturbed.) 18" tall annual.
