Approximately 300-400 seeds for 7-8 square meters bed.
Flat-leaf type with long stems and large pinnate leaves.
Very heavy cropper with excellent aroma and strong flavour.
Parsley is used fresh to flavour soups and for decorations.
Do not cool to keep the vitamins,. Parsley is diuretic, expectarant and stimulates digestion.
Grow this herb in full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. Parsley tastes best in the first year during the cool season and becomes bitter in the second year and during flowering, so it’s best to start a new crop each year. Plants are commonly grown from seed and planted in spring. They can also be planted in fall where winters are mild.
Grow parsley in an herb garden or vegetable patch. It also works well in containers or as a foliage plant in mixed borders. It is also ideal for butterfly gardens as its leaves are favored by black swallowtail caterpillars.
