When to expect harvest
Plants are sold when they’re ready to eat! We recommend not harvesting more than 30% of the plant at one time. Parsley can be harvested whenever you need fresh herbs for a meal. Regular cuttings will encourage newer growth. Newer leaves have a fresher taste vs. older leaves.
Parsley has an upright growing habit. New stems will grow from the base of the plant throughout the season. Parsley is a biennial. It should not go to seed during the year unless it’s severely stressed by its environment.
Basic care information for Parsley plants
Thoroughly saturate the grow bag with water in the morning before the heat of the day arrives. If daytime highs are consistently above 70F, your plant will need to be watered daily. Check the grow bag frequently by using the finger method described on the bag tag.
Slow-release fertilizer is included in every parsley grow bag. Add supplemental fertilizer if the leaves start to turn light green or pale in color. Look for fertilizer labeled for vegetables or use a fertilizer with a higher nitrogen content i.e. fish emulsion.
