This variety of Italian flat leaf parsley is fairly hardy, surviving the cold winters in my Maine garden 90% of the time without mulching or extra care. Seed has been saved yearly from the one plant that overwintered the first year here. Ever since then I have been growing it. Not only is this variety tasty for use in the kitchen, it blooms beautifully and attracts pollinators in the garden.
AYS TO MATURITY
DAYS TO GERMINATION:
Transplant (recommended): Sow in 1″ cell containers. Seeds take at least 3 weeks to germinate.
Direct seed:Sow in spring after the danger of frost has passed, about 1/4- 1/2″ deep, 3 seeds per inch in single rows or 2-3″ wide bands 12-18″ apart. Thin plants to 8-12″ apart.
Grows well in moist, fertile soil. If planted in a well-drained location, it can normally be wintered over to produce a crop early the following spring. Water with a diluted liquid kelp fertilizer once every two week for continual harvest.
