Think parsley is just a garnish? Think again! Flat Italian parsley adds the perfect flavor to frittatas, chickpea salad, and pasta dishes. Try blending it with garlic, olive oil, and walnuts to create a perfect parsley-based pesto. Or use it for a classic gremolata with lemon and garlic. Flat Italian parsley holds up better in cooking than the curly variety, plus it tolerates warm weather better. Easy to chop, the nutritious leaves are high in iron and vitamins A, C, and E. It’s the perfect palate cleanser, too, as its chlorophyll-rich leaves naturally sweeten breath. Flat Italian parsley grows best in light, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Try growing it in a container if drainage is an issue in garden beds. It’s a great addition to fall and winter gardens in zone 7 and warmer, making a pretty companion with cool-season flowers, like pansies and violas. Frost tolerant. Biennial (grows the first year and blooms the second). Read More

Welcome your Plant

1. Remove Packaging

Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.

2. Check the Soil

Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.

3. Adjustment Period

Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.

Long term Care

1. Location, location

Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.

2. Soil & drainage

Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.

3. Hungry plants

Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
