Care and Growing Instructions

Sowing Seeds Indoors:

Sow parsley seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost in spring
Sow parsley seeds ¼ inches deep in seed-starting formula
Keep the soil evenly moist at 70 degrees F
Seedlings emerge in 7-21 days
As soon as parsley seedlings emerge, provide plenty of natural light on a sunny windowsill or grow under fluorescent light on a 12 hours cycle.
Transplant parsley plants in the garden after a period of “hardening”, increasing the seedling’s exposure to sunlight gradually over a one-week period. Seedlings are ready for transplants when they have 3 to 4 true leaves.
Do not allow parsley seedlings to dry out for the first few weeks after transplant.

Sowing Seeds Outdoors

Direct sow parsley seeds in average soil in full sun after all danger of frost has passed when the soil temperature is at least 60 degrees F. Basil grows best in fine, well-draining soil of average fertility.
Sow parsley seeds evenly and cover with ¼ inches of fine soil.
Firm the soil lightly and keep evenly moist.
Seedlings will emerge in 7-21 days, possibly longer in cooler soils.

To grow parsley, keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients. Mulching the growing area helps the soil retain moisture and prevents weed seeds from germinating.
For parsley, an organic mulch of aged bark, weed-seed free straw or shredded leaves is ideal. Mulching has many benefits including added organic matter and fertility as it will improve the soil as mulch breaks down in time. Always keep mulches off a plant’s stems to prevent possible rot.
Keep parsley plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Keep the soil moist but not saturated. Parsley plants should not be allowed to dry out.
Do not harvest too much of the plant at one time as this may weaken the plant.
