How Do I Grow Parsley?

Parsley is quite slow growing, to start from seed plant 2 seeds in each cell, about 1cm deep. Parsley seeds can be slow to germinate and can be soaked in lukewarm water for 24hrs before planting them, which will speed up the germination process. When you see the shoots appear, move your seeds to a spot where they will receive full sun.

Parsley can be moved outdoors five weeks before the last spring frost.  Plant them in your garden at the same depth they grew in the tray. Parsley is cold hardy and can be harvested throughout most of the winter. If you can, plant parsley somewhere that receives only partial sun in the summer.
