Great all-rounder for the herb garden. Parsley is high in vitamin C and Iron, add freshly picked leaves to almost any savoury dish for a nutrient boost. Good companion plants for tomatoes, roses, chives too.
DESCRIPTION: Biennial herb with large flat leaves and a rounded habit. Italian parsley has a more robust flavour than the curly variety making it ideal for stocks and sauces. Despite the bold flavour it is perfect served with fresh vegetables such as carrot and beetroot. PLANTING: Sow year round and during Winter in warmer locations. Sow seeds into seed raising mix or direct & thin to 2-3 plants at approx 5cm in height. A full sun position is ideal although parsley will tolerate part shade. USE IN: Add to almost any dish for a healthy boost of freshness. Parsley is high in vitamin C and Iron. Leaves may be frozen for later use. CARE: Parsley loves plenty of water, for best results water regularly, you'll be rewarded with loads of lush leaves. Mulch plants to retain moisture in the soil. Boost new growth by applying liquid fertiliser monthly.
