Old Country Acres Niagara
Parsley, Italian Dark Green - Petroselinum crispum; Certified Organic
(Annual) Currently tended to be seen as a bit of green garnish that you leave on your plate, parsley is actually a very old herb valued from the time of the ancient Greeks. The Greeks held it sacred to oblivion and to the dead, making wreaths of it to adorn their tombs. By the 16th C, it was regarded as a medicinal herb - especially useful for "cast(ing)foorth strong venome or poison" (Gerard) and healing sick fish by throwing it into their ponds (?). Or you could use it in soups, salads and stews, as it's more flavourful than the curled type. Slow germinator. Grows to 10- 15", sun or pt shade (approx. 12,800 seeds/oz).
