I tried to do some reading online and did not find a good answer. Is parsley a member of the celery family? The reason I ask was I pulled some flat leaf parsley out of the garden (it was huge) and I needed the space. Well when I dug it up it looked like a multiple of bunches of what a local garden nursery sold me last year as celery. I planted this myself as large leaf or flat leaf parsley, yet it appeared to have a bunch of celery type bunches at the bottom. So I guess my question is - can you treat these stalks as celery - I am almost embarrassed as before I did cut them up from the supposed "celery" the nursery sold me and used them as such.
They were smaller then celery - but so are alot of plants that I grow compared to what we buy. They tasted fine. I just want to hear from someone who can enlighten me. Thanks - will be close to 90 today in Florida. Last year this time we were colder then normal - this year it seems much warmer ! This changing climate is not good for planning a garden.
