Parsley - Italian or Plain Leaf
This parsley is a favorite as it has immense foliage which is medium dark green, flat and deeply cut. More flavorful than the curled types, is gathered, dried and put into airtight jars to be used during the winter for flavoring soups, stews and sauces.
Some gardeners like to soak the seed for a few hours before planting to aid in germination. For fresh parsley all winter, a few plants indoors in pots in a sunny window.
