An indispensable herb, this has a multitude of uses, not least for garden decoration where the mounds of daintily curled leaves are an asset anywhere. They make a decorative edging to beds and paths, and also complement seasonal flowers in window-boxes, containers and hanging baskets. If protected from frost, the biennial plants can be cropped right through the winter and into their second year. Make two sowings a year to ensure there is never a shortage of fresh parsley, and pot up a few plants in autumn for cutting in winter on a window-sill.

A HARDY curled parsley can be a useful addition to soups and cheese dishes in the Winter when there is less around to choose from. A hardy variety will survive frosts and snow. I really like FLAT LEAVED parsley varieties as well as they can even be added to salads in the Summer. As this variety is half hardy I might choose a different one.
Couldn't add this parsley to my Gardeners World scrapbook as I kept getting an advert each time I clicked on the scrap book icon next to the Latin plant name. Disappointing.
*** for the plant.
* to GW for adding adverts where they aren't wanted!
