With the arrival of spring, it is essential to prepare for gardening in the early stages. March is an opportune time to sow various vegetables, herbs, and even fruit and berry trees. Parsley is one of those early plants that can tolerate frosts easily and produce vigorous shoots when sown in early spring. SSPDaily investigated when and how to sow this herb effectively.

Sowing parsley at the optimal time

Timing is crucial to achieve abundant parsley growth. Ideally, wait until the ground is completely thawed, and the air temperature is consistently above five degrees Celsius before sowing parsley outdoors. If you prefer following a lunar sowing schedule, the most favorable months for sowing parsley are March, April, and early May, especially on days that coincide with the waxing moon.

Preparing the ideal site for sowing parsley

Parsley thrives in sunny locations, as this herb requires plenty of light for optimal growth. When selecting a site, prioritize areas with ample sunlight. Additionally, avoid locations with high water tables, as parsley prefers moderate moisture levels.

Soil conditions for parsley

Ensure that your soil is well-fertilized before sowing parsley. Consider enriching the chosen area with organic or mineral fertilizers, readily available at your local store. A properly prepared bed creates favorable conditions for robust parsley growth.

Prepare the seeds for improved germination

Enhance the germination potential of parsley seeds by preparing them before sowing. It is advisable to soak them in warm water for a day, remembering to change the water 3-4 times during the day. This simple step stimulates abundant and accelerated germination of the plant.

Successful sowing and proper care

Begin by preparing the sowing site. Two days before sowing, water the soil generously to enhance its moisture absorption. Sow the parsley seeds to a depth of 2 centimeters, ensuring not to cover them tightly to prevent shading the sprouts. Maintain a distance of about 20 centimeters between the furrows. Some experienced gardeners even opt for a zigzag pattern when sowing the herbs, ensuring sufficient space for unhindered parsley growth.
