DISEASES: Prevent disease with crop rotation and good sanitation.
LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun.
SOIL REQUIREMENTS: Grows well in moist, fertile soil. If planted in a well-drained location, it can normally be wintered over to produce a crop early the following spring. Mulch where temperatures go below 0°F (-18°C).
Water during dry spells and side-dress with compost or a balanced fertilizer once or twice during the growing period, if necessary.
PLANT HEIGHT: Varies.
PLANT SPACING: 8-12".
HARDINESS ZONES: Biennial.
HARVEST: Clip leaves when needed. To maintain the crispness and appearance of freshly harvested parsley, store at temperatures of 32–36°F/0–2.2°C at 95% relative humidity. Parsley can be used either fresh or dried. To dry, wash clipped leaves and spread out shallowly on screens in a warm, airy place. When thoroughly dry, rub and store in jars.
PELLETED SEED: If using pelleted seed, we recommend consistent soil moisture during the germination period. Pelleted seed must be kept cool and dry prior to planting, and should be used within one year of purchase.
