Description

Organic Parsley: Grune Perle. Petroselinum crispum.

Reliable finely-curled parsley that produces thick dark green ‘cushions’ of leaves that stand well. Grows quickly and profusely. For use in the kitchen garden.

How to grow:
Sow fresh seed, this is the most important part. Germination can be slow or erratic so be patient. Can start as early as February on a seed tray undercover and plant out in May. Or you can direct sow thin and wide into a well prepared seed bed in May. It’s biennial here so you can get winter and next spring from them. Grow in full sun.

Problem solving:
Keep slugs off when young. It does prefer to have warm feet but not to the point of drying out. Water from below.

Favourite ways to eat them:
An essential ingredient in many dishes, soups, stews, as a garnish. Reported to have a soothing effect on a sensitive stomach and a mouthful of raw leaves counteracts the effects of garlic breath. Caution with large quantities if you’re pregnant.

Cultural history:
A biennial plant here in the north, it is an annual in subtropical and tropical areas. Flat leaf parsley is closer to the wild relations than curly. Originally from the Mediterranean area it has been cultivated for centuries.

Avg contents:   400 seeds.
