Parsley, Italian Flat Leaf-Organic

Planting & Harvesting
Seed Depth: 1/4″ (6mm)
Plant Space: 8″ (20cm)
Row Space: 16″ (41cm)
Sprouts In: 7-28 days
Plant in early spring, or start indoors six weeks before last spring frost. Transplant when 2-3″ tall. Parsley does best in a sunny area with rich, well-drained soil. Water consistently. Very slow germination can be improved by soaking seeds overnight and allowing to dry before planting.
Cut individual stems as needed, or harvest entire plant by cutting 1″ from the base.
