How to grow parsley

Parsley is possibly the most useful herb you can grow. Flat leaf parsley has a strong, grassy flavour, while curly parsley is a little more subtle and sweeter.

Grow from seed, keeping the temperature consistent until planted out. Parsley needs a large pot and partial shade in a spot that’s sheltered from the midday sun.

Pick as required during the growing season.
