Fun Facts

Fresh parsley contains apoil oil. Plants containing apoil were used by woman in the middle ages to terminate pregnancies. Not so funny.
It is commonly grown in the home garden as it is easy to cultivate. The plant grows to about 60 cm and should be regularly harvested before it goes to seed.

The botanical name for Parsley is Petroselinum, which comes from the Greek word "stone", petra. It was given to parsley because Parsley was found growing on rocky hillsides in Greece.

Parsley was also used to make garlands and was given to horses as fodder.
