Ratings & Reviews
Large leaves & really prolific plants. They love my soil here in KY zone 6b/7a, it's October 20 and they still look good as new.
Large and vigorous
Large, vigorous plant with large taproot. Recommend starting in 2" square or larger seedling tray if starting indoors.
Has done well for us here in MN. Of all the herbs I start early, this parsley always does the best.
