How to grow
Sow the seeds where the plants are to grow when the soil has
warmed up thin the seedlings out to 20 cm apart and keep well watered if the
weather is dry.
Sow the seeds in rich, well worked soil. Parsley
prefers a sunny position. in a severe winter parsley will need some protection.
Usually it will grow happily all year round on the window sill In a container.

height. There are several different varieties Hamburg, French and curly (the
most familiar) being among the best known.
Parsley is very high in vitamin c. It is a very familiar herb, used to
decorate savoury dishes. The leaves can be finely chopped for sauces and fish
dishes, salads and cooked vegetables. Hot Parsley tea is a tonic and diuretic
and is supposed to help rheumatism.

Parsley is used chopped into very small pieces for a typical Lebanese salad (TABBOULI) which is very healthy, i advice every body to try it: it is mostly containing parsley, chopped Tomato, green onion, Lebanese Mint Bourghoul(Lebanese minced wheat) special Lebanese pepper, fresh lemon Juice and olive oil better to be from Lebanon. Bon appetit and Cheers.
Hi: My mother gave me parsley seeds 15 years ago and I have no problem using it every day with chives, celeriac chopped up. I use it fresh, dried. It is the easiest to grow and plentiful when you sow enough. It will reseed every year, hang plants upside down until they dry, place in a large bag when dry and just shake. You should have enough seeds to last a lifetime, as well as share, give to all you know. QUESTION: I NEED THE RECIPE FOR A PARSLEY DRINK, i.e. it takes one cup of parsley, juice of lime plus zest, water and do not know the rest, can you help. It is pureed, strained, and diluted and then one can add I believe Club Soda for a non-alcoholic green drink. thanks in advance

I just freeze several sprigs of parsley in a plastic bag.Simply put in a bag, seal, then place in freezer.Most herb leaves can be chopped up and frozen in ice cubes.
Parsley can be dried either by hanging up in a dry, airy place or by putting on a tray in a very low oven. It should then be crumbled and stored in airtight containers.
In theory dried herbs should have more flavour weight for weight than frozen ones but that does depend on successful drying which isn't always terribly easy.

I usually just put it into a plastic bag and freeze it like that.Alternatively you can chop it up and freeze it in water in an ice cube tray.

Glad the website has been of use to you.Keep on getting good marks!
The website is based in the U.K. We use an american software so the date is shown as it is expressed in America.In America they put the number of the month first so September is 09, then they put the date, then the year. So today is 09/30/2007.
I'm Amy and I'm 11, and at are school in food tech we are doing a whole book about herbs and spices and we had to do a page about parsley and i got top marks thanks to the help of this page! I have told all my friends about this website to help them on it to :) Thank you.
Also after the name on the comments it has the date and on the above ones it says 06/16/2007 but their is no such thing as a 16th month? in England (were i live) we only have 12, so were does this website come from???
Parsley has a long tap root and so needs a nice tall container. Your parsley needs to be watered deeply so the moisture gets right down to the bottom.The leaves need to be cut at the bottom during the growing season starting at the outside of the plant first.
My parsley (in a pot) is going the same as yours at the moment so I'm going to cut back the white leaves and give it a good drink and use or freeze as much of it as I can. Soon it will try to flower and seed and the leaves won't be much good at all.
I am growing my parsley in a trough with some other herbs out in my garden, it appears to be doing ok, however just one thing I need to ask, some of the leaves ( just a couple) seem to be dried out or something very light in colour almost white and dry looking, can you tell me what caused this and should I cut these leaves out? Oh and by the way, am I supposed to cut parsley or pick it from the base of the plant, or the head where the leaves are?
Thank you Mary.
