markristo logoHow to care for your organic parsley plant.

A parsley plant (Petroselinum crispum) will grow best in a sunny, preferably south-facing window where they will receive six to eight hours of direct sunlight every day. Turn the pot every three or four days so that the plant doesn’t lean into the sun.

Make sure your container has several drainage holes and a saucer underneath it, to catch any water that drains through. If you transplant your parsley, fill the new pot with a good quality potting soil and add a handful of clean sand to improve the drainage.

Indoor parsley care is easy. Keep the soil lightly moist, and empty the saucer under the pot after every watering so that the roots never sit in water. Feed the plants every two weeks with fish emulsion or half-strength liquid fertilizer.

Harvest sprigs of parsley for garnish or to use in cooking, by pinching off the outer most branches, being sure to leave the central branches to continue producing.

When all chance of frost has passed, plant your parsley outside in your garden in well-drained soil, or in a larger pot on your patio or deck where you may enjoy it all season.
