When to Plant Parsley Seeds
Start indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of the season or sow directly into the garden after the last frost of the season.
Where to Plant Parsley Seeds
Parsley thrives in fertile soils that are moist but well drained. Parsley grows best in full sun (6-8 hours of sun per day) but will tolerate partial sun (4-6 hours of sun per day). Avoid planting in hot areas, and give additional attention in the summertime to prevent Parsley from drying out.
How to Plant Parsley Seeds
Before planting, we recommend soaking parsley seeds for 24 hours to encourage germination. Learn more about here.
Sow directly onto moist soil via broadcasting and do not cover the seed. Be sure to keep the soil moist throughout the germination process, as it may take 4-8 weeks for seeds to germinate. To speed up the germination process, soak Parsley seeds overnight in water before planting. If started indoors, transplant into the garden 8-12 inches apart from each other.
How to Harvest Parsley
Parsley is easily harvested; snip off the stalks just above the ground level. In order to preserve the plant, allow the younger inner stalks to remain during harvesting.
