Parsley is a mild-flavoured herb, and parsley leaves are often used to create attractive garnishes for a variety of dishes. Rich in vitamins and minerals, the ruffled green herb is a flavourful addition to soups and other culinary delights. Although good old curly parsley is the most familiar, you might be surprised that there are many different kinds of parsley.

Parsley is not just a dark green garnish. The leaves are high in vitamins and minerals. I use parsley in soups, salads, and to make a scrumptious green shake of parsley, bananas, maple syrup and water. Parsley is also a good edible landscape plant. This low growing herb makes a good dark green edging for annual annual and perennial flower gardens.

Common name: Parsley
Height: Plant Height : 12.0-18.0, Width :6.0-8.0"
Difficulty level: Moderate

Planting & Care
Parsley grows best in full sun on well-drained, compost amended soil. If you have clay soil, consider growing parsley in an 8-inch tall raised bed. Parsley makes a great container, window box, or hanging basket plant as well. Plant parsley along walkways with your flowers or near the kitchen to be readily accessible when cooking.

Sunlight: Full sun or partial shade.

Soil: Parsley prefers loose, moderately fertile soil with plenty of added organic matter.

Water: Parsley likes moist soil. If you think the plants might need water they probably do.

Temprature: 45°F - 75°F

Fertilizer: Parsley prefers a fertile soil with lots of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.

Care:
  • Amend the soil with compost and space seedlings 12 inches apart in rows spaced 12 inches apart.
  • If sowing seeds, thin the seedlings to the proper spacing when they’re 2 inches tall.
  • Since germination can take up to 3 weeks, keep the bed well watered.
  • Consider covering the bed with a floating row cover to help keep it moist.


Harvesting: Harvest parsley starting about 1 month after planting, removing the outer leaves first and snipping the leaf stem to the plant crown. By snipping the outer leaves, it allows the inner leaves to continue to grow. Harvest as needed during the summer. In fall before a hard frost, dig up plants in the ground and pot them. Place the pots in a shaded, protected area outdoors for 1 week. Gradually move it indoors into a sunny window. It will continue producing leaves until the light levels diminish in fall. Then harvest what’s left and compost the plant.

Care:
  • Parsley likes a rich soil so add a small handful of an organic fertilizer, such as 5-5-5, monthly around each plant.
  • Keep plants well watered and mulch after weeding with straw or untreated grass clippings to help keep the soil cool and moist and to keep soil out of the crevices of curly parsley’s leaves.
  • Control for aphids with sprays in insecticidal soap.
  • Swallowtail butterfly larvae love to feed on parsley.
  • It’s actually a great plant to grow in a butterfly garden for that reason.
  • Unless there are many caterpillars on your plant, don’t worry about controlling them.
  • A few won’t cause too much damage.
  • Hand-pick and move those that are devouring a plant.

Use
Culinary use:
  • Used as a garnish or directly in dishes, parsley is a delicate herb with a strong peppery taste, making it a favourite for many chefs.

  • As a biennial, edible white flowers emerge in an umbel during the plant’s second growing season.

  • Flat leaf parsley tends to be favoured for its culinary uses while curly is more often used as decoration.
  • However, flavour varies greatly by variety, so don’t rule out any types without checking their full credentials first.
