It was only after I cleared the bed the other week I realised what a nice healthy patch it had become. As parsley has a long tap root it grows far better in the ground rather than a pot. Though I suppose if you had a big enough or rather deep enough pot it would be happy. As I now have two nice patches of flat leaved parsley I might try some curly parsley too.
I'm in the process of planning a herb garden. Most of the herbs I grow are in pots apart from a few which are in the ground. We have a bay window in the kitchen which has always been a bit of a pain for me as the sink is in it along with some units. Being only 5 ft tall I can't open the kitchen window without help, the help being a step or the much taller Mike, Rob ( who is rather inconveniently away at uni most of the year so is no help), I shall be making much use of Harry in a year too.
Anyway Mike is going to remove the bay window so there will be a flat run of units there. This also gives me a bit more space outside. I'm planning a bench under the window & extending the brick bed for herbs, roses & dahlias.
Enjoy your day
