Parsley grows well in cooler conditions, so it is handy to have in the garden when summer herbs have finished for the season. Tripled Curled Parsley is one of our best sellers, and for good reason! You will get lots of mileage out of this 'cut and come again' herb. Use it as a decorative border plant or a versatile addition to your herb garden. 

Our organic Triple Curled Parsley Seed Packets contain around 50 seeds - plenty for a small garden.

What is Curly Leaf (Triple Curled) Parsley? 

Tripled Curled Parsley (Petroselinum sativum) is an easy-to-grow green herb with ruffled, curly leaves. It originated in the Mediterranean and has been cultivated for more than 2,000 years.  Some historians credit Charles the Great, the Holy Roman Emperor, for making this herb so popular because he had it gown all over his property.

Parsley is the ideal herb for a cottage garden, a pot or an apartment setting - cut the leaves as you need them and leave the rest for another day.

Culinary Uses for Curly Leaf Parsley

Parsley is the perfect summer or winter herb garnish and adds a clean and peppery taste to Mexican Chimichurri sauce, Middle Eastern tabbouleh, or a host of European recipes.  We love it tossed through boiled baby potatoes with rock salt, olive oil and a good squeeze of lemon.

Growing Conditions - Triple Curled Parsley

 

We recommend that you grow Parsley from seed, as it can be tricky to transplant the larger plants. Choose a sunny - partly shady spot with rich free draining soil.  Companion plant with Onion, Asparagus and Tomatoes.

Parsley can handle a light frost or a windy spot and is somewhat drought tolerant (although regular water produces a better quality harvest). You can plant this herb year-round in warmer parts of New Zealand, but autumn is ideal.

      What will postage cost?

      Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

      Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

      If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

      If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

      How often do you dispatch?

      To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

      How do you package your products?

      We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  

       

      Where do you deliver to? 

      We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

      South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

      While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

      We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

      Do you deliver to post office boxes?

      Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
