About- Named for its frilly curled leaves, Curled Parsley is a Biennial that grows to a height of 12-24". The leaves have a mild herbaceous flavor, making it a versatile herb to include in many recipes. Use it fresh or dried in soups, sauces or marinades.
When and Where to Plant- Start seeds indoors in 1" cell pots 6-8 weeks before last frost. Transplant out in a sunny location when all danger of frost has passed.
