How to grow:
Most gardeners sow parsley seed indoors to give the plants a head start; soak the seeds overnight, then plant them 1/4″ deep and keep them at 65-70 degrees F. Because parsley has a notorious habit of slow germination, don’t expect to see sprouts for 3-5 weeks. Keep the soil evenly moist. Transplant the seedlings when the average outdoor soil temperature reaches 60 degrees F, spacing them 6″ apart in full sun or partial shade. Parsley has shallow roots, and should not be allowed to dry out for long. Mulch to help conserve moisture and control weeds. Parsley also grows well as a container plant.
