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.


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!


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.

Great September 14, 2014
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.

Parsley: Single (Broad) Leaf March 12, 2014
Reviewer: Cynthia Phillips from Medina, TN United States  
I received it very quickly, so I was pleased with that.  I planted them 11 days ago and  am waiting to see if they sprout.  I'm a first time planter and forgot to soak them, so I will probably have to soak some and try again (if I don't see sprouts soon). I'm very happy with my purchase.

I am very happy with my seed purchase and look forward to planting them soon.
Shipping was very fast - seeds arrived in a couple days and in good order.  I would buy from here again.  I ordered extra seeds to share some with my sister.  Thank you!

Amazing Products from an Amazing Company! January 22, 2014
Reviewer: Liz from Ludlow, MA United States  
Exactly what I expected; no surprises.  Air tight packaging, easy to read labels, clear instructions on planting, beautiful seeds! I purchased several types of seeds and they were all just as their description on the website said they would be.  I will CERTAINLY do business with My Patriot Supply in the future!  What a wonderful company.  I am so glad they offer such a wide variety of GMO free and organic in a world where Monsanto dominates the seeds many unsuspecting individuals use!
