Petroselinum crispum ‘Moss Curled Parsley’ | ‘Parsley’ | ~50 seeds
The Petroselinum crispum variety ‘Moss Curled Parsley’ is a popular and extremely tasty culinary herb. Moreover, it’s full of vitamins and healthy amounts of calcium, iron and antioxidants too. A great addition to any kitchen herb garden, ‘Parsley’ seeds are easy to germinate and even easier to grow!
In order to help break down natural germination inhibitors, soak the seed for thirty minutes or so in warm water prior to sowing. Once soaked, sow thinly indoors all year around (or else outside between April to July), cover with roughly a centimetre of fine soil and then keep moist. Germination occurs after approximately two to four weeks at a minimum temperature of 12°C (15°C-20°C is ideal if possible). Parsley can grow up to 50cm or so tall and the leaves will be ready to harvest as soon as they are of a sensible size – generally roughly three months from sowing.
