Italian Giant

Italian parsley is used for its deep flavor, which some say holds up better in cooking than curly parsley.

A popular ingredient in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, Italian Giant has great-looking color.

• Choose a sunny location (6+ hours of sun) and dig a hole about two times as wide as your pot.

• Remove your plant from the pot by loosening the soil and tipping it out into your hand. Place your plant in the soil about as deep as it was in the pot.

• Refill the space around your plant with soil and press lightly to compact the dirt, keeping your plant firmly in the ground.

• Water immediately to settle the soil, and add more soil as needed, bringing it level to the rest of your garden.

Water as needed all season to keep soil evenly moist, keeping your eye out for the first sign of wilt. Wilting is a sure sign that your parsley needs water. Feed with a vegetable fertilizer to ensure your bountiful harvest.
