Parsley Seeds Sowing instructions:

One of the most popular herbs in the world, parsley is the classic “stock-pot” herb and a quintessential part of any herb garden. This herb can also successfully grow inside, so it is perfect for any Urban GIYer – or just someone who wants to brighten up their kitchen.


March to June 


January to December 


  • Parsley can be sown direct or sown in modules and transplanted.
  • Outdoor sowings can be made from April to June.
  • Indoor sowings can be made from from March to June.
  • If sowing direct, sow curly parsley thinly in rows 15cm apart and large-leafed parsley in 30cm rows, at 0.5cm deep.
  • If sowing in modules, sow a small pinch of seeds in each module and thin to one plant when seedlings emerge.
  • Keep in mind parsley seed is slow to germinate, so be patient – this is dependent on temperature, but usually germination takes three weeks.


  • When seedlings emerge, the plants can be thinned to 15cm apart. This is not essential but usually gives better results.
  • If you have sown direct make sure to regularly check for weeds. Weeds can often take over the bed before plant begins to germinate.
  • Plant out module-grown seedlings at the same spacing (15cm apart) when they are 7-10cm high. Transplant carefully as they hate root disturbance.
  • Parsley should be kept moist to prevent bolting. Water well in dry weather.


  • Cut leaves with scissors at 6-8cm from the soil, this ensures good re-growth.
