Parsley, Italian Latin: Petroselinum crispum
It is commonly used to flavor or garnish food. It is similar in appearance to curled leafed parsley, but has a stronger, more robust taste as well as a flatter leaf. As its name implies, Italian parlsey is indigenous to Italy and most of Mediterranean Europe, though it is cultiveated with great success in many parts of the world.
Start your parsley plants from seed using a seed tray. This works best for starting your plants indoors. Keep the soil moist and the tray in a warm place. Parsley seeds take six to eight weeks to germinate, so be patient. If you live in a warmer climate with no threat of frost, you can plant directly into the soil in early spring. But, as mentioned above, the soil does need to be warm. Plant the seeds no more than one inch deep and ten inches apart. Just as in using a seed tray, germination can take up to eight weeks.
HAPPY PLANTING !! Heirloom seeds are great gifts. Include them in your greeting cards. Give the gift that keeps on giving.
