Parsley (Petroselinum crispum- incl. tuberous rooted types)
Parsley, One Community

Parsley is grown for its distinctly flavored greens and (in some forms) the crisp white fleshed tubers. Greens are eaten fresh or cooked and can be dried; they are one of the richest known sources of Vitamin A. The so-called Hamburg types produce dark-skinned tubers with white flesh that will overwinter under mulch and can form a perennial bed.

CULTURAL CONSIDERATIONS
  • Plant out in early spring
  • Parsley seed is difficult to germinate
  • It prefers a rich soil and steady moisture
  • Parsley is generally grown from transplants
  • Stratification or hot water treatment helps germination
PLANTING GUIDELINES

Start seed in late winter or early spring indoors. Dibble seedlings into individual pots and gradually harden off in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Plant outdoors after last frost and feed with liquid fertilizers during the growing season for greatest leaf production.
