Parsley can be sown directly outdoors 2-3 weeks after the final frost date; but if you're looking for an early start, plant indoors 10-12 weeks earlier. Pre-soak seeds for 8-12 hours to accelerate germination; and then sow 2-3 seeds per group 1/4" deep in rich, well-drained soil in full sun. As seedlings grow, thin to 1 plant per group and ensure spacing of 8-12" between plants. To harvest, cut exterior leaves from around the central crown as this will encourage additional growth.
Enjoy Parsley all year round, replant a parsley plant in a deep pot and keep it in a sunny window in the kitchen. Snip and enjoy!
