One of the most popular herbs, Parsely is easy to grow and has many uses.  With its decorative leaves, curly Parsley is classically used to garnish dishes.  Parsley is also used in bouquet garnis, and to flavour soups and stews and sauces.  Often served with fish and other strong flavours, Parsley helps to neutralise any lingering strong tastes.  Parsely grows very easily and so is best grown in a containers to control its spread.

These plug plants will need potting on into a 9 or 10cm pot and growing on in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill.  They need to be kept at a minimum of 7 degrees celsius.  We recommend that you keep your plug plants quite dry in the early stages of growing to encourage root growth.  However it is very important not to let them dry out completely!  The compost should be kept moist, not waterlogged, but also not dry and dusty.  

Once the risk of frost has passed your herb plants can go out in the garden.  They prefer a position in full sun.  Feed them weekly when they are in flower with a good quality organic feed.  Water regularly to prevent them from drying out.  Watering is best done in the morning or evening instead of when the sun is at its strongest, to prevent the leaves from being scorched.
