How to grow Parsley Seeds

Sow seed indoors in a greenhouse or on a warm windowsill, and don't move plants outside until summer. Or, plant outside when temperatures are 18 C or warmer.

Parsley Italian Giant likes a light, well-draining soil with some well-composted material. Germination will typically take 7-21 days. Parsley seedlings do not transplant well so growing in pots is a good option. They can be re-potted into larger pots when they have outgrown the seedling pot stage. Cover seed lightly with fine soil and keep moist during germination. When the seedlings are about 5cm tall, thin and set plants outside when it is warm and after all danger of frost. Parsley matures in about 60 days.

Leaves can be harvested as soon as large enough.
