Flat Leaf Parsley (Petroselinum crispum) Herb in 9cm Pot

French Parsley or flat-leaf parsley prefers rich well-drained soil in a sunny or partially shady site. It is a clump-forming plant that is easy to germinate from seed, responding best when the seed is soaked overnight in hot water prior to sowing. Showing very prolific growth, French Parsley produces a white tap root and a profusion of leaves, which have a flat triangular shape and a dark green colour. These leaves are the main crop, being very rich in iron and Vitamin A, C and E, and have a stronger flavour than the curled variety. 

Herb Usage

As a garnish, no herb is better known than Parsley (Petroselinum crispum), and it is grown in several varieties around the world. Leaves of flat leaved parsley are used to add flavour to food as well as a garnish. Parsley also has the ability to counter strong odours so is often used with garlic or onions.

    Healthy plant but arrived pot-bound.

    Plant arrived healthy and in good condition. It was well packed and protected. However I was surprised to find it pot bound. Thankfully, having prised the roots apart and potted it on it is growing away well.

    all the plants were fine but arrived very squashed even though they were in plastic containers, so much so that pots were broken
