Flat leaf parsley (Petroselinum neapolitanum) has more flavour than its cousin curled leaf parsley, but is generally considered less attractive when used as a decoration.[2]

GrowingEdit

LocationEdit

Outdoors a site in semi-shade is ideal.

SowingEdit

Sow seeds ½cm (¼in) deep in April for a summer crop and again in August for winter use. Germination is slow, it may take up to a couple of months.

ThinningEdit

Thin seedlings to 25cm (9in) between plants.[2]

AftercareEdit

Water in dry weather and cover overwintering plants with cloches or straw.[2]

Remove flowering stems as they appear. Some can be left to provide seeds for sowing next year.[2]

HarvestingEdit

Pick regularly to ensure a continuous supply of fresh leaves.[2]

PreservingEdit

DryingEdit

Dip the tips into boiling water for 2 minutes and then place in an oven on the lowest possible setting until crisp. Crush and store as soon as the leaves are cool.[2]

FreezingEdit

Shred leaves and pack into ice cube trays in the deep freeze. Add individual cubes of frozen parsley to soups, stews etc. as required.
