I have some Flat-Leaf Parsley plants in the veg-patch. During the Summer they grew big and produced some massive leaves, many of which ended up in the kitchen:
Then the leaves went yellow and died back. I removed most of them, and they went into the compost-bin. But now a new flush of leaves has come through. They look very different to the ones from last Summer. They are on shorter stems and the leafy bits themselves are smaller:
My question is this - Is this normal? Actually, I have several questions: Will the plants produce any more useable leaves now, or will they just die back? As far as I know, Parsley is a biennial and presumably the plants have run their course now and will only produce flower-stalks. Should I therefore pull them up, or is it worth waiting a while?
What do you think?
