  • Soil: fertile, moist, but well-drained soil

    Tightly-crimped dark green leaves give this richly-flavoured parsley a frizzy, frothy look, making this one of the most decorative herbs in the garden. It's very reliable and a perfect choice for those shadier spots in the veg garden. It's also good in pots and troughs, placed by the back door for easy picking.

  • Garden care: In frost-prone areas parsley should either be over-wintered indoors in a cool greenhouse or protected using a cloche.
