Growing Parsley

Parsley is a biennial herb however, the results aren't so good after the first year so it is mainly grown as an annual.

The germination period for parsley is around 3-4 weeks and requires warm temperatures. It does best if it gets around 6 hours of sunlight each day, so choose your spot in the garden that will get that amount of sun per day. As usual, the plant requires well drained soil with lots of organic matter and good levels of nutrients.

Give a little drink every fortnight or so with a liquid fertiliser, just to keep it happy and well fed.

Harvesting is 'as you need it' and the more you pick the better!
