Botanical Interests "Italian Dark Green Flat" Organic Parsley Seeds

Parsley is a biennial that is grown as an annual, because the flavor is best in the first year. Italian Dark Green Flat parsley has superior flavor that is tantalizing for omelets, salads, stews, vegetables, fish, sauces, eggs, soups, and mixed with soft cheese such as ricotta or cottage cheese. Abundant in Vitamin C, iron, antioxidants and other nutrients, it is an excellent digestion aid and freshens breath. Grown near roses, it is said to improve their scent and health, and it makes a good companion plant for tomatoes and asparagus. Parsley is easy to grow in containers or window boxes and makes an attractive edging plant. For a novel use, try it is as a refreshing bathwater addition.

When to plant outside: Early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before average last frost or when soil temperatures reach 50 degrees.

When to start inside: 8 weeks before last frost.

Special Germination Instructions: According to legend, parsley seed has to go to the devil and come back 7 times before germinating. Thus, parsley can take as short as 15 days to and as long as 6 weeks to come up. To speed germination, soak seeds in water for 24 hours before planting. After seeds are sown, water with warm water. An old time gardener recommends sowing in furrows, watering with boiling water, then covering the seeds with soil (seeds germinate better in darkness). Note: Replant every year. Even though parsley is a biennial and comes back the 2nd year to flower and produce seed, the foliage does not taste as good in the 2nd season.

Harvesting: Pick the outside stalks as needed.
