    * 2 varieties of parsley: curled - for garnish; flat-leaved - better
      flavour

    * rich in vitamin C - has 3 times more than oranges
    * has almost as much vitamin A as cod liver oil
    * stems contain more flavour + vitamins than the foliage
    * harvest stems from the outside of the plant so young growth in the
      centre can flourish
    * prefers semi-shade & rich, well-worked soil
    * sow seeds at any time throughout the year
    * germination is slow, helped by bruising the seed or covering with
      boiling water
    * over-winters well
