How To Grow Moss Curled Parsley From Seed: Parsley can be grown in pots or in your herb garden. Using seedling modules or small pots, sow a pinch of seed in each cell/pot. When the seedlings establish, thin to leave only the strongest one in each cell/pot. Germination of Parsley seeds can sometimes be slow, taking anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks. Heat speeds up this process.
Transfer to your herb garden or to a large pot when the seedlings are well established, and temperatures are favourable.
Alternatively, sow directly outside in shallow drills from late April onwards.

About our Organic Irish Vegetable Seeds
We are passionate about providing high quality organic and open-pollinated seed to all of our customers. The term, open-pollinated seed means, seed that comes from plants where pollination has happened naturally.
Benefits of using open-pollinated seed: These seeds have been around much longer than F1 hybrid or genetically modified seed, therefore they evolve with our environment. The plants they produce are much more genetically diverse and therefore will have a much higher benefit to pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
Furthermore, using open-pollinated seed means you can produce the same plant the following season from saved seed.
This is not always the case with F1 hybrid and genetically modified seed.
