How To Grow Triple Leaf Curled Parsley
Seeds can be planted outdoors in March or April, and again in late summer for early growth the next spring. Direct sow outdoors in early spring, or once the soil has warmed up, ideally around 70°F. As parsley is slow to germinate, often taking up to four weeks, soaking the seeds for 24 hours in lukewarm water will help to hasten sprouting. You may also start seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before the last frost. Parsley prefers soil enriched with plenty of organic material, such as compost and well-rotted manure. And a pH of 6.0-7.0 provides the best range for nutrient absorption and vitality. Sow seeds 1 inch apart at a depth of ¼ inch, and keep the soil moist for the entire growing season. Thin to 6 inches apart when the second set of true leaves has emerged.
