My greeting about parsley :D

Hey, guys! This is my first post. I should introduce myself, but I don't know how to do it. My name is Louise! <3

Due to the beginning of the cold season, I can no longer take care of my garden. The only thing I do is remove the withered leaves from the grass near the roses. I want to move my parsley to the city (I live on the outskirts of London). Has anyone done this before? Should I dig deep to dig up parsley, or should I start over and buy parsley and coriander seeds and grow them in a long pot on the loggia?

    Hello Louise,

    Do you have two houses, one in the suburbs and one in the city? Why do you need to move the parsley?

    I don’t know what a loggia is but it sounds like something with an external atmosphere. Parsley and coriander will die down in cold weather. Parsley will regrow in the spring.

    If I were you, I’d pop out to the supermarket, pick up some potted parsley and coriander plants and put the pots on the windowsill over the winter.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    Parsley has a very deep root and resents being moved but it is really easy to grow on from a supermarket pot, as @pansyface says. I grow it down here in the south and it keeps going all winter but has to be replaced once it begins to flower. They do self seed if you leave them to it.

    Just buy one in a supermarket, put in in a bigger pot with fresh compost.  It's worth doing with many other supermarket herbs too.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Louise is a spammer and got caught out yesterday with her advert in an inserted  link on another thread. I wouldn't waste my time answering her  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
