Parsley Petroselinum hortense

How to sow parsley: Direct seed indoors or outdoors

Sun requirement for parsley: Plant in Full Sun

Parsley has been planted 63 times by Growstuff members.

Parsley is an herb in the Apiaceae family with two main cultivars: flat leafed (or Italian) and curly. Some gardeners feel flat leaf is easier to cultivate since it is more tolerant of rain and sunshine. Curly parsley is more decorative in appearance. Both cultivars can be used fresh or dried to season food.

Coming together

by shawnacscott,

This weekend I had two full days to really focus on the yard, and I made the most of it. With the intermittent help of several others over the course of the weekend, I got both easement planter boxes filled with compost and soil, cleaned up and weeded the alley, got the stump pulled from the coni...

Transplant day!

by inkstone,

I originally wanted to do this yesterday but it rained in the morning so that kinda put a damper on things. So I did it all today instead! A bunch of the seeds I wintersowed in the milk jugs and soda bottles were getting crowded so it was time to move them to their bigger (permanent) container...
