When I took the pepper plants out of the greenhouse last autumn I planted a few parsley plants in the border. These had been languishing in a seed tray for some months, having been surplus to my outdoor planting requirements. They have provided supplies of fresh parsley right through the winter and are particularly productive at the moment. That said it will not be too long before they decide to run to seed and I need the space for this year's tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. Accordingly I sowed a small tray of moss culed parsley this afternoon. I prefer the tight curly parsley in preference to the flat leaf varieties.
