Plant of the Week: Parsley

You want to be generous with parsley, chopping fistfuls of flavour-packed greenery into salads, soups and Italian sauces to lift them from good to sublime. Growing your own is the best way to get the quantities you need, so sow a row every six weeks to ensure a constant supply.

There are two main varieties, flat-leaved (said to have a superior flavour) or moss-curled, which is very frothy and looks lovely edging your flower beds.
