PARSLEY (Carum petroselinum)
Parsley is usually raised afresh from seed each year, as young plants provide the best-curled leaves. Any ordinarywill suffice, and can well be grown as a border edging round the vegetable garden or as edging in the herb garden. There is a common saying that “Parsley goes to the devil before it comes up.” In other words the seed takes a long time to germinate. To keep a supply all through the winter months it is necessary to lift a few of the youngest plants at the end of the summer, and pack them into the soil of the cold frame.
