Most People use a lot of parsley in their kitchens and it is great to always have a few sprigs freshly available from your garden.

  • Unlike other herbs, Parsley will grow in shady spots.
  • They also like a lot of water – under a tap is often a very good position.
  • Feed your plants with Nitrasol to encourage foliar growth.
  • Remove the flower heads when the plants start to seed to encourage more foliar growth
  • Established plants will often last for a few years if they are maintained properly.


Here is a quick recipe for parsley fritters. I like to make it for breakfast served with some freshly grated cheese.
Parsley is a great source of Vitamin C and is also a great breath-freshener.


  • 8 slices of bread – crusts remove and crumbed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 onion grated
  • 1 cup freshly chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper


Mix ingredients together. Fry fritter size spoon-fulls in a pan with cooking oil. Serve hot with grated cheese.
