Parsley Seeds 'FRENCH FLAT LEAF' ORGANIC
Seeds per pack; approx. 450
Plant out; April
Parsley is part of the Umbellifer, ( Apiaceae), family like many other important herbs and vegetables such as carrots, parsnips, coriander, dill and celery. It is Biennial and flowers in its second year.
There are three main types of parsley: curly leaved, flat/plain leaved and root parsley, grown for its parsnip like roots.
The plants can be overwintered to get some early spring pickings but take them out when your new season plants are ready, If left in the old ones will only go up to seed.
Flat/Plain Leaved or French Parsley has dark-green, deeply cut, flat leaves which have a very fine flavour, making this variety a culinary favourite.
Sow seeds from February in pots or modules, in good organic compost at 13 degrees C. Pot up modules into 8 cm pots and then transplant to their outside position in April.
Later sowing can be made direct into the growing site from April onwards. Make drills 1 cm deep and scatter in the seed. Thin to a final spacing of 20 – 25 cms.
