French or flat parsley generally has a sweet more delicate flavour than curled parsley making it ideal for more general cooking use. The plants are vigorous with district flat leaves. Ideal for growing in the Veg patch, containers or the kitchen windowsill.
Sow seed thinly directly outdoors from mid spring onwards in a sheltered position as soon as soil is workable and cover with 1/8 to 1/4 inch fine soil. To speed germination, seed can be soaked in warm water for 24 hours before planting.
Plant on a windowsill throughout the year.
Thin outdoor plants to 6 inches apart when seedlings are 2 inches high. Indoor windowsill pots can be left to pick young as does not transplant well.
Harvest leaves continually during the growing season to encourage new growth. Harvest larger sprigs off plants as they mature.
Parsley grows best in a mostly sunny location with relatively rich, moist, well drained soil.
Plants are quite cold hardy and can usually be harvested into the winter.
