SOIL REQUIREMENTS:

Water during dry spells and side-dress with compost or a balanced fertilizer once or twice during the growing period, if necessary.

Varies.

PLANT SPACING:
8-12".

HARDINESS ZONES: 
Biennial.

HARVEST: 
Clip leaves when needed. To maintain the crispness and appearance of freshly harvested parsley, store at temperatures of 32–36°F/0–2.2°C at 95% relative humidity. Parsley can be used either fresh or dried. To dry, wash clipped leaves and spread out shallowly on screens in a warm, airy place. When thoroughly dry, rub and store in jars.
