Parsley is an aromatic plant widespread in our gardens and easy to cultivate. We like it to accompany salads, vegetables, fish or in sauce as the parsley. This herb, from the Apiaceae family, or umbelliferae, has many varieties. Among them, there are three types: flat parsley, curly parsley and parsley tuberous large roots.
Parsley is planted from March until the end of August. Before sowing, it is advisable to soak the seeds for 24 hours. Then dig shallow furrows to place the seeds and cover lightly. Although it can grow in all soils, parsley prefers light and humusy soils. Choose a sunny or semi-shaded spot in your garden. In this case, you will have to fill the bottom of the pot with clay balls, then add soil completed by a little compost. If you wish to plant according to the lunar calendar, the sowing will take place in the rising moon.
When the plants have formed 4 or 5 leaves, remove a few of them to aerate the rows. Water regularly, especially in hot weather, to keep the soil moist. If the plant is sown in early spring, it can be harvested in summer. If sown at the end of summer, harvesting will be possible in winter. Just cut the leaves as you need them.
