    Default Polish parsley!

    My neighbour has a patch of this which has become naturalised in her garden, left by the Polish family who had the house before her - and I have harvested some of the seeds. This parsley is a flat leaved variety but finer cut leaves and not as tough as the normal flat leaf parsley - it has a gentle flavour. If anyone wants some seeds to try, do pm me!
    BroadRipple and shobhna like this.

    A bit more investigation has revealed that the person who planted the parsley was Asian not Polish so I am not sure what variety it is - however it is a gorgeous parsley. I have just done a germination test on some of the seeds and it has started sprouting in 7 days Now I forget who I promised this to (sorry ) so do let me know if you are still interested.

    Just come across your polish parsley (is it called Pledge or Mr. Sheen???). Do you have a few left to spare as I would love to try some!! Anything you would like in exchange, or would you prefer postage??

    PM me Torreya with your details. It is a good strain of parsley so well worth trying out.

    I just came on here J to search for this thread and to say thanks for the seeds and lo and behold - here it is.

    So, thanks again for the seeds - and as you have done a germ test I'm going to sow some this week and grow it indoors for the winter.

    That's what I'm going to do with the test seeds, Zaz. I only tried a pinch of them and I reckon they will be lovely diddy plants for the festive season!
