Sowing Instructions :
Germination is hastened by first soaking seeds in water overnight. After soaking, sow seed 6 mm (1/4″) deep in rows 40 cm (16″) apart. Be patient. Parsley takes up to three weeks to sprout. Keep the seedbed evenly moist, but avoid crusting over the soil as this will greatly reduce the number of seedlings that emerge. Mulching the seed bed aids germination. Thin seedlings to 10 cm (4″) apart after germination. Keep parsley well weeded.
