CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

  • Leaves may be dried or frozen but for best flavour, use fresh and add last minute to dishes.
  • Younger leaves have the best flavour and texture so remove and discard older leaves to encourage new growth and keep the plants tidy.
  • Parsley likes a rich compost or fertile soil, so if growing in beds outdoors, dig in well-rotted manure to improve soil quality if necessary.

Care Guide

How to grow Parsley

  • Sow outdoors, from March to July, thinly where they are to crop, 1.5cm (in) deep, directly into finely prepared, moist but well-drained soil that has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin seedlings to 30cm (12in) apart. Water well until plants are established. Sow seeds every few weeks for continuous cropping.
  • Or to grow indoors all year round, sow 0.5cm (in) deep, thinly in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20C (60-68F) is ideal. Plants can be grown on to maturity on a light windowsill.
  • Harvesting: Pick the leaves as required (outdoor crops from May). Pick a few leaves from each plant so they regrow quickly.

Aftercare

  • Cloche protection in autumn allows winter picking.
  • Protect from frost in winter with a cloche or move potted plants indoors or into a cool greenhouse for new growth the following spring.
