Description 

Curled parsley has beautiful, dark green leaves well known & is the best known of all the garnishing herbs. it is a great winter garden plant and looks beautiful in containers with pansies or other winter color.

Environment

Parsley needs full sun to part shade, depending on season. Curled parsley is less heat tolerant than flat Italian parsley. It’s not unusual for curled parsley plants to experience slow growth in the heat of summer, while flat Italian parsley thrives.

Plants grow best in rich, moist soil. Keep soil moist after planting until plants are well-rooted. Plants grow best with adequate moisture. In containers, irrigate whenever soil is dry. It has shallow roots, and should not be allowed to dry out for long. 

Harvesting & Storage

Pick leaves at any point in the growing season. Snip individual leaves, cutting stems back to the base of the plant

To store in the refrigerator, wrap unwashed stems in a paper towel. Slip the bundle into a tightly closed plastic bag. Use within 7 to 10 days. For longer storage, freeze leaves individually on a parchment-lined tray, in a single layer in a freezer bag, or in ice cubes (chop leaves first).

Landscape Use

Curly parsley can look very ornamental as an edging to a large pot of nasturtiums. It can also be grown in hanging baskets (keep well watered) window boxes (give it some shade in high summer) and containers.
