French Parsley Seeds
Info: French Parsley is the typical variety of moss curled type. The long stemmed vigorous plants have tightly curled dark green heads of good texture and with an exceptional and intense flavour. The leaves of the curly parsley are usually used raw as spice herb or only briefly heated, otherwise they lose their typical flavour.
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.
