Description

Petroselinum crispum

A tall growing ‘giant Italian’ parsley producing flat leaves with long stalks. It has an agreeable, full parsley flavour, and is the variety of choice for discerning cooks.

The seed can be sown anytime, but for a full season seeds should be sown in March to April. Sow seed into modules and if possible, though not essential, germinate indoors (polytunnel or greenhouse) in full sun. Germination is very slow, So be patient. Transplant out when roots have filled the module.

Harvest by cut-and-grow-again. New leaves will quickly grow, and plants will produce continuously well into the autumn. The plants can also be overwintered in a tunnel or greenhouse from an August sowing. Perfect for growing in pots. 

Plants are biennials, and will flower in the spring after going through the winter.

Approx. number of seeds per pack: 500
