Parsley is an annual which is grown for it’s flavoursome leaves which are used for garnish or chopped into sauces, butters, dressings and stuffings. Parsley curled is more suited as a garnish while flat leaved (French or Giant Italian) has a stronger taste and is easier to prepare.
Plants can be planted outside from early spring to the start of summer in well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Keep the plants well watered, especially during hot, dry spells in summer. Remove any flowerheads to extend the cropping life of the plants. Snip off any lower shoots that start to turn yellow.
Cut single leaves or bunches low down on the stems with scissors and use fresh, it can also be frozen to provide an all year round addition to your dishes.
