Spacing: Plant seedlings 12 inches apart

Soil: Site in a rich, deep, well-drained soil. Fertilize when plants are 4 inches tall and again one month later
Additional Care: Very frost tolerant, but it is also happy growing on a windowsill
Appearance and Use:
Common Parsley, P. crispum var. crispum, is a biennial often grown as an annual. It is grown for its divided, curled or flat, dark green leaves. Harvest them at any time for use as a flavoring or garnish. Plants can be heavily harvested as long as the growing point remains; after heavy harvesting fertilize and water to promote new growth. If plants are allowed to grow a second year, harvest the leaves before the flowers open. Hamburg Parsley, P. crispum var. tuberosum, is grown for its fleshy root. Dig it in the fall, after a frost, to use as a flavoring or as a vegetable (the leaves have little flavor)
Prepare soil mixed with organic manure or compost before sowing the seeds After all frost and check soil is clean from any weed or insect, sow seeds and cover seeds with soil, pour water gently smooth way Do not use pipe or a mug to water for the first week, as the force of water might damage the seed germination process. Germination may take place 10-18 days, depending upon different varieties. For Herbs/small seeds variety special care needs to be taken cover the sowing area with transparent polythene in evening for fast germination All flowers, tomatoes, chilli, peppers, brinjal etc all needs to be transplant once the plant is 3-4 inch. All varieties require very less water, and need sunlight min 2-3 hours daily for winter variety 1-2 hours sun is fine for germination process.
