Detailed planting instructions:

Although parsley is a biennial, it’s best to start new plants each year because the leaf flavor is not as good in the second season. To hasten germination of this slow-sprouting seed, pour warm water over seeds and let them stand overnight before planting. Sow seed in individual pots indoors or plant them outside in the garden. Parsley is very hardy: You can direct-sow seeds 2 to 3 weeks before the last spring frost. (If you sow seeds directly in the garden, keep the area as weed-free as possible so the tiny, slow-growing seedlings don’t have to compete with a jungle when they sprout.)

Plants do well in sun or partial shade, and prefer a rich, moist soil. Thin plants to stand 6 to 10 inches apart, and provide an even supply of water all summer. In some regions, caterpillars such as cabbage looper and black swallowtail larvae may take up residence and nibble on plants.


HARVESTING

To harvest, cut entire leaves from the outer edge of the plant as you need them. At season’s end, you can cut the entire plant for storage. To dry parsley, tie stems together and hang them in a shady, warm, well-ventilated area.

Once thoroughly dried, crumble the parsley and store it in an airtight container. To freeze, remove leaves from stems, rinse, and pat them dry before placing in a zippered freezer bag.

To keep fresh parsley crisp and flavorful, place stalks in a glass of water and store it in the refrigerator. In cold regions, pot a few plants in the fall to place in a sunny window. Though you won’t get a large yield, you will have some fresh, tangy sprigs to remind you of summer!


SAVING SEEDS

To save parsley seed, overwinter at least two or three plants. In warmer areas mulch heavily with straw or cover plants with a frame, elsewhere grow a few plants in a polytunnel or greenhouse. The next spring, the plants will start to flower and produce seed. Flat and curly leaved varieties will cross, as the flowers are insect pollinated, so you should only grow one type for seed at a time. Harvest the seeds from individual flower heads as they dry and turn brown, as they tend to drop from the plant when ready.

The best seeds we've ever planted April 13, 2016
Reviewer: Beth from Warner, NH United States  
Our family began using My Patriot Supply seeds last year and were very impressed with the quality and crop we received. These are high quality seeds that I can feel good about knowing they are GMO free. This spring I planted early and a friend came to help. She brought some organic seeds from a different company to plant as well and within 24 hours the MPS seeds were already sprouting while hers took more than a week to begin popping up. I highly recommend MPS to anyone who is looking to plant a garden!

Wonderful company April 2, 2015
Reviewer: raquel dietrich from stockbridge, MI United States  
I order from them every year! Everyone knows their speed in delivery, but I actually grow my seed every year and germination is almost 100%!  If you want to see the seeds as plants you can youtube Raquels garden and farm. Almost 2 acres of plants all from Patriot supply. Were donating it all this year. Thank you patriot supply for not raising your prices and keeping your customers in mind.

Reviewer: Justine from Brodheadsville, PA United States  
Grew half last year and half this year. It grew beautifully. Before I knew it I had a forest of this stuff. Dried most of it last year which went great.
