Sow seed in several stages every two weeks from May to July. Choose a sunny site with average soil. Seed should be sown 6mm (1/4in) deep in rows 40cm (16in) apart. Be patient as parsley seed can take up to three weeks to sprout. Avoid crusting over the soil as this will greatly reduce the number of seedlings that emerge. To aid in germination of seed and help keep the soil evenly moist, lay burlap over the seedbed – remove as soon as the first seedlings appear. Thin seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart after germination. Keep parsley well weeded, water regularly and lightly feed with a high nitrogen fertilizer several times during the season.
