Parsley MOOSKRAUSE Petroselinum crispum Has very nice, green curled leaves that can be used to embellish the dishes. In autumn it can be transplanted into pots to be kept in the kitchen for winter use. Sown as a tomato neighbor makes the tomato flavor better. Good neighbors are also onion, radish or turnip. The seed needs 20-30 days to germinate.
Possibly the most popular herb grown in cooler areas, but also one of the most 'failed' herbs. There are two reasons for this - firstly parsley is not so quick or easy to germinate as many other herbs. Secondly, it does require a reasonably rich soil to perform well. Once growing well in a good soil, it is, however, a low-maintenance plant. Parsley needs a rich well dug soil which does not dry out too often. It prefers full sun, but if the soil is good, it will do very well in partial shade.
