How do I grow parsley?

Growing Your Own: Parsley

Parsley is the most commonly used garnishing herb, but also does well in sauces, salads and dressings. Try to imagine fragrant couscous or tiny new potatoes without handfuls of fresh parsley! It also goes well with eggs and white fish.

Parsley grows easily from seed. It likes rich soil and needs watering until it is established. It's a biennial plant and its leaves can be harvested throughout, but the seeds won't ripen until the second year. Replace the plant after the seeds have been collected.

Parsley grows well indoors, but once you discover all the uses for it, you will struggle to grow enough in a container. So make sure you also have a row outside….
