About Anthriscus

Anthriscus, commonly known as ‘Cow Parsley’, hold dainty umbels of white blooms that perch upon long and elegant purple stems and foliage. They look particularly attractive when naturalised in a meadow or an informal garden setting where it can set seed freely. You should expect to see Anthriscus grow to an approximate height of 1m (40’’) and a spread of 30cm (12’’).

How to plant Anthriscus

Anthriscus are best planted in well-drained soil of chalk, loam, sand and clay within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH setting. They are best positioned in a site which has access to full sun or part shade. Dig a hole that will accommodate the depth and width of your plant. You may wish to amend the planting area with a generous amount of organic matter and mix thoroughly. Water well once in place to settle the surrounding soil.

How to care for Anthriscus

You may wish to support Anthriscus during the spring with brushwood or link stakes. This should be undertaken before the flowers appear. During autumn, it is important to apply a thick layer of mulch around the roots to protect your plant from severe weather conditions. Cut the stems back so that they are just above ground level to encourage healthy growth for the following season.

How to propagate Anthriscus

It is possible to propagate Anthriscus by seed sown in a cold frame during spring and autumn.
