This was my first time planting parsley from seeds, I usually purchase seedlings, locally. Seeds were sown after danger of frost and raised bed soil temperature was above 70 degrees F. Very slow to grow. Not nearly as lush as planting seedlings. Next Spring I will either start seeds indoors or plant seedlings.

Owner Response: Hi JoAnn, Parsley does best when sown early in the season, 4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date, or as soon as the soil can be worked; when the soil temperature is 50-85 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also start it indoors, giving you the same head start you would get when purchasing seedlings, but at a much lower cost. Happy gardening!

Very sparse germination; Invasive species?

I planted these seeds directly into raised beds in spring. Of the 9 clusters I planted, only three germinated. As the plants grew, I compared the leaves to the packet and did some google searches to check the plant. It turns out the plant that was growing where I had put parsley seeds was an invasive plant called Sweet Annie/Wormwood. I'm not sure if this is a coincidence or the seeds were not parsley after all. I immediately pulled the Sweet Annie once I knew it wasn't parsley, which by that time was three feet tall. The other few plants that were indeed parsley didn't grow well and only had four or five leaves through the whole growing season.

Owner Response: Hi Marissa, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It is common for weeds to germinate when you cultivate an area. Weed seeds lay in wait in the soil "seed bank" and when the soil is disturbed or watered they can germinate. Parsley Germinates best when planted quite early and grows best in cool temperatures. Since the seeds are so small and they are sown shallowly, regular watering is really important for success. A customer service agent will be with you soon to help.
