One reason for growing parsley is its unique good looks. I once planted a ring of parsley plants around a peach tree. They flourished in the filtered shade, looking wonderful well into summer. No other garden plant is quite so cheerfully green.
And you thought it was just a garnish.
How to Grow Parsley
This is about the only insect that bothers parsley grown outdoors. These voracious eaters are the larvae of the black swallowtail . If you are a butterfly lover, as I am, you may not wish to destroy these worms.
A gentler way of dealing with parsley worms is to plant extra parsley for them. This way, you'll still get your harvest. Plus, your yard will become a breeding ground for these beautiful butterflies. It's a win-win.

I was diagnosed with asthma as a teenager. After several years of struggling with asthma medications and not really getting any better, I decided I could not take it anymore.
The drugs made me feel sleepy all the time.
I threw them away, determined to learn to treat my asthma naturally.
Drugs were much cheaper in those days. I was an impulsive teenage girl. I don't think you should throw your meds away until after you speak with your doctor and find a natural remedy that works!
For the last 30some years, I have been managing my asthma naturally.
I sprinkle ground black pepper on my food daily (it cuts mucus) and avoid my triggers. I also use thyme and cloves often in cooking as these 2 herbal anti-spasmodics relieve the bronchial spasms which happen during an asthma attack.
I have not had a full-blown attack in years!
Over the years, I have discovered many other safe, cheap alternatives to pharmaceuticals. They work if you know how to use them correctly.
That is the true value of Herbs the Natural Alternative. It tells you which herb to use to treat your ailment and how to use it.
