Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow seeds under cover in plug trays or pots (avoid seed trays because, as with any umbelliferae, it hates being transferred). Cover with perlite. Sow February - July. You can speed the germination process up by sowing into a length of guttering under cover and transplanting outside. Plant in a shaded location either in a container or the ground. Keep plants well watered, especially during hot, dry spells in summer and remove flowerheads to extend the cropping life of the plants. Give plants a boost by feeding every few weeks with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Prevent plants from becoming unsightly and encourage new growth, by snipping off any lower shoots that start to turn yellow.
Care Tips Parsley likes plenty of nutrient rich, moist, deep soil Not suitable for acidic soil. In the autumn apply plenty of well rotted manure.
Flowering June - July
Storing Freezing is the best method, although it can be dried too
Harvesting Pick leaves for fresh use or for freezing. Fresh cut parsley should be wrapped in damp kitchen paper, placed in a perforated bag and stored in the fridge. It will last for up to 3 days.
