Used to work in horticulture (Wakehurst Place). Now in Leeds, it's my passion! Contending with Yorkshire weather and a huge oak tree!

Seeds sown fresh last autumn. The next generation is here! It's monocarpic so the parents are long gone....

It's been a 3-year wait, but finally my Black Parsley is flowering! Sad thing is though it's going to 'pop it's clogs' when it's done. Definitely collecting seeds and sowing fresh.
