TSW: 2-3 g
Seed amount: Direct 10-15 g/100 m², for market 20-30 g/100 m² depending on the spacing in the rows and the desired size at harvest, for pot growing 40-50 g/1,000 pots
Cultivation: Space rows for fresh market cutting 10-15 cm apart, for industrial growing space rows 20 cm apart or double rows 10 cm apart and 30-40 cm between the double rows
Very quick growing, therefore sow repeatedly every 2-3 weeks for market
Flowers quickly from Spring sowings, therefore for industrial use it is better to sow at the end of June which reduces the risk of flowering and makes a second cut possible
Chervil loses a lot of its aroma when dried, so for industrial use it is mostly frozen.
