Parsley (Italian) - Large Pot
Well-established Italian (flat leaf) parsley plants, ready for planting in your garden or a larger container.
Plant is approximately 20cm tall, excluding the pot.
Although parsley is classed as biennial (i.e. it's not meant to go to seed till its second year), I've found that in reality in Northland conditions it often goes to flower in its first year. So if you're a parsley lover, plan on replenishing your plants yearly for a steady supply.
Parsley thrives in spring and autumn in this part of the world, where there's a bit of sun - but not too much heat - plus regular rain. In winter, it slows right down: we've found it does quite well in our polytunnel during the cooler months. It's definitely not a fan of our hot, dry summers: the best thing to do is to have it partially shaded, and water it regularly - daily if you can. We keep much of our parsley in large containers that can be moved around according to the seasons, to try and keep it happy and productive.
