Parsley is one of the most used an popular herbs in the UK. It’s simple, peppery taste pairs well with many dishes like stews and soups but can stand out on it’s own in a pesto or in a salad. The leaves can be flat or curly, but the pleasant flavour is always a great and versatile addition to your kitchen.

How to grow parsley at home

Plant your parsley in a shaded location with a well-draining soil. You can plant your parsley in a container, window box or garden bed. Water the plant well to keep the soil moist, but not wet. Try to avoid watering the leaves directly as it will increase the chance of them burning. Beyond this, this easy to grow herb requires very little care other than making sure that the ground around the plant is well weeded.

How do you harvest parsley?

Parsley can be harvested throughout the summer months. Take a few leafy stems from the outside of a clump, snipping them near the base with scissors.The leaves are best used fresh, but can also be frozen or dried for use in winter.

What are plug plants?

Plug plants are very young plants that come ready to go in the ground. They are grown in single units in modular trays and be either seedlings or cuttings. Buying plug plants lets you fill your beds and borders easily, and in a way that is stress-free for your plant since it allows for little root disturbance.

How do you plant a plug plant?

When you first get your plant home, remove any packaging except for the pot. Place the plant in a warm and sunny space for 2-4 hours to let them recover and acclimatise. You should try to plant your plug the same day if you can. To do this, dig a hole in your desired place that is slightly larger than the root ball and soil around it and put the plug inside. Cover with the existing earth and press down lightly. Water well for the first week to help the plant establish itself and feed with an all-purpose feed after 3 weeks.
