Parsley Plain or French
Plain or French Parsley is the variety that is used all over Europe. It produces flat dark green leaves with the most outstanding flavour of all the varieties available, making it the ideal addition to any meal, including fish and salads. It can also be used as one of the ingredients in a bouquet garni.
Plain parsley is also thought to have a slightly better flavour and texture than curly varieties of parsley.

When to Sow Plain Parsley Seeds
All year round
Where to Sow
Early sowings can be made into pots or trays underglass at 15°C, lightly covering the seed with a sprinkling of compost. Sowings can also be made at regular intervals into small pots of compost on a warm light windowsill all year round. Alternatively Sow seed thinly April to May direct outdoors where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½in) deep, into finely-prepared soil.
What to do next
Glasshouse sowings can be pricked out into individual pots or trays and grown on under glass before gradually hardening off in a cold frame and planting out after all risk of frost has past. Outdoor sowings should be gradually thinned to an eventual spacing of 25cm (10in). Windowsill sowings can be harvested as required.
All year round
Seed can sometimes be slow and erratic to germinate, taking up to 6 weeks so please be patient. Water regularly through dry weather.
