Did you know that parsley is said to mask garlic breath? It’s worth growing just to try! And if bad breath doesn’t bother you, at least parsley is perfect for making tabouleh as well as flavouring pasta and meat dishes.

How to grow parsley in a garden

  1. Choose a sunny or partly shaded spot in the garden and prepare the planting area well by digging in Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser
  2. Sow seeds direct or fill starter pots or trays with Yates Seed Raising Mix. Sow seeds, cover, firm down and water well. Keep the soil moist throughout germination - this can take up to 3-4 weeks.
  3. Once seedlings have emerged, feed weekly with Yates Thrive Vegie & Herb Liquid Plant Food. Allow seedlings to grow to about 5-7cm before transplanting.
  4. Water regularly to keep soil moist and mulch around the base of the plants with organic mulch like sugar cane or pea straw to help retain moisture.
  5. Harvest when leaves are dark green and remove flowering stems to help extend the harvest window.
