Parsley help

It's a biennial so won't last long but letting it seed in the garden will probably get you some babies naturally. I'm sure it's hardy enough for Scotland

Yellow is the colour.......

The leaves opening on my Cornus sanguinea are such a bright yellow I thought I was looking at a flowering shrub from a distance.

I'd snip out the growing tips of all the branches, that will thicken it up. I've got quite a bit of laurel and the best and thickest are the ones I've treated this way.

The ones I cut back hard died back more
