There are only a few herbs that make it into my herb garden every year. Parsley is one of them. Parsley (Petroselinum crispum) is an easy to grow biennial plant. That means that it grows for 2 years. The first year parsley starts from seed. It dies back a bit but lasts through the winter then starts growing again in spring. In the second year it flowers and the flower stems can reach almost 4 feet tall! In the fall, it goes to seed. It dies off after going to seed. While you can eat parsley from the plant for both years of it’s life, it generally tastes much better the first year.
