I bought a flat leaf parsley plant a 2 years ago, and understand it now needs replacing. It's a pretty big bush and parts of it don't even look like parsley but some parts look perfectly good.
Can I still eat it or must I really chuck it away ?




no you can give it a trim and keep it going if its happy enough. I have one that responded well until OH thought it was a weed and yanked it out.
do you let it self seed? that way you will get parsley but it may not be identical to the original but still perfectly edible.

I had some of the other parsley which survived for about 5 years until I cut it back this year and I think its a gonner.

Not being too well up on self- seeding I looked it up in google.-
"Plants that drop seeds around which grow "

I hope my parsley does this,thanks S.G.I'll leave it there.
And thanks C., for your input.
