Parsley Giant Italian Flat Leaf 'Oscar' / Good Flavour / Seeds

Italian Parsley ‘Oscar’ has large flat leaves with exceptional flavour - an excellent culinary herb for growing indoors or outside.  The good flavour of this variety makes it popular with professional chefs.  Plants are vigorous and productive and leaves are held upright away from the ground, growing to a height of 20-30cm.


Grow in full sun.  Leaves can be cut for cooking from 30-45 days from germination and they regenerate after cutting.  Good choice for growing in pots.

 

Pack of approx 300 seeds.  Sow directly in the soil outside from spring to autumn. Sow indoors anytime, making sure you provide enough heat and light for good growth.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the seed packet.

Sow

For indoor cultivation: Sow year-round on the surface of moist seed compost in trays or pots.  Cover lightly with compost, and keep at 20°C. Germination takes 3-5 weeks.  Water sparingly and give the plants good light.   For outdoor cultivation: Sow from March to September directly in the soil in rows, and thin to 20-30cm apart.

Grow & Harvest

Harvest the leaves once the plant is established, generally 30-45 days from sowing. The leaves regrow after cutting. Provide liquid feed every fortnight when the plant is growing.  Trim back any flowerheads to encourage plants to produce more leaves.  Keep plants well-watered during dry spells.  Replace plants every 2 years.
