How to Grow Herbs


Parsley is best grown from seed. Once your seedlings are strong and sturdy (about 4cm high), plant them 30cm apart in well-composted soil. Make sure they get full sun for at least 7 hours a day.

Water your Parsley plants 2 or 3 times a week. To increases its lifespan, make sure you trim the plant regularly and cut the flowering heads off as they appear.

If, however if you want your Parsley plant to make seeds, leave the flower heads to ripen and scatter. Plenty of seedlings will come up, which you then can transplant into seed trays.

Parsley is a great companion for green beans, tomatoes and spinach.
