{about}
In addition to being an herb widely used in cooking, parsley is a helpful companion plant in gardens. Like many other umbellifers, it attracts predatory insects, including wasps and predatory flies to gardens, which then tend to protect plants nearby. They are especially useful for protecting tomato plants as the wasps that kill tomato hornworms also eat nectar from parsley. Parsley's strong scent is reputed to mask the scent of the tomato plant, reducing pest attraction. While parsley is biennial, not blooming until its second year, it is ready for harvesting in its first season.

{planting information}
Days to Germination: Germination may require 3-6 weeks.
Lifecycle: biennial
Sunlight: full, part sun
Height: 1-4"
Spread: 8-18"
Special notes: The germination of parsley can be jump-started by a change in temperature. Store seeds in the freezer overnight to break dormancy. Soaking parsley seeds overnight in lukewarm water immediately before sowing softens parsley's tough shell and shortens the germination period.

{how to plant}
Sow seeds 1/16" deep where desired as soon as ground can be worked or in fall for the following spring. Planting the seeds too deep can inhibit germination. Parsley seeds often need more water than other seeds to germinate and can take up to one month to sprout. Parsley grows well in deep pots, which helps accommodate the long taproot. Parsley grown indoors requires at least five hours of sunlight a day.
