Growing Parsley, also curly leaf parsley or flat leaf (Italian) parsley

I always have parsley growing in my garden which self seeds and tends to pop up in unexpected areas around my garden. This year a parsley plant popped up in a perennial flower bed which has gone on to produce massive leaves up to 90mm across with fronds measuring more than 200mm in width. I have never seen anything like it and it is the most tender and sweetest parsley I have ever tasted. Can anyone shed any light on this apparent aberration?

Sounds like damn good rich soil to me.
