Parsley seed can be sown any time between September and May. Curly and Italian (flat leaved) parsley are variations of the same plant. Seeds are slow to germinate and can take 3-5 weeks. Refer to the Gardenate Planting Guide for more details. Parsley is a biennial which means it has a two year life cycle. In the second year it will flower and seed. let one plant go to seed and drop its seed. you will end up with many seedlings as replacements. Trust this helps.
