Parsley: Parsley is a classic herb that has been cultivated and treasured for thousands of years. It’s native to the central and eastern Mediterranean. It’s as slow growing biannual, yet we usually harvest and use it in its first year of life when it make a rosette of leaves. Generally divided into flat leafed and curled varieties it absolutely deserves a space in the garden or even a container.
