Chervil is one of my favourite herbs, with a gentle aniseedy flavour. Chervil leaves are lovely raw in salad or added right at the end into an omelette.

I find Chervil hardy for sowing in autumn and growing outside – at least in the south of England – right the way through winter and spring. This runs up to flower quickly in the hot and dry, so don't sow in summer.
