Has anyone any idea how good parsley is… I am growing quite a bit, both sorts the curly one, and the flat leafed one, but what I want to know was it an old wives tale that parsley has plenty of iron in it. I am getting very tired, and tried making parsley drinks and chewing on it, but did not seem to make any difference. I have bought some iron tablets, but my system gets literally bound up, any one else know what I can use to get the iron back in the system?

  • Generally green leafy vegetables are high in iron but you need to take it with Vitamin C for your body to be able to use it.


  • oh i might try growing some as well. it will be lovely with some carrot and cheese


  • i had never heard of iron being associated with parsley. will have to check it out
