Parsley Italian Giant Seeds
Info: Parsley `Italian Giant` is the typical flat leaf parley with large plain bright green leaves with strong distinct flavour. This parsley is best for cooking, since it can withstand heat and retains its flavour better than curly parsley. Known to have better flavour than other varieties, it is increasingly popular in the kitchen, and is indispensable for a huge range of cooked and salad dishes. It is the choice parsley for drying.
Sowing & cultivation: Parsley likes a good deep soil, not too light and not acidic and sunny to half-shady place. Parsley can be sown all year round in pots or directly outdoors, and it hates being transferred. Direct sow seeds thinly, in drills 30-45cm apart and about 3cm deep. Keep moist. If at any time the leaves turn a little yellow, cut back to encourage new growth and feed with a liquid fertilizer. At the first sign of flower heads appearing, remove them if you wish to continue harvesting the leaves.
