How to Grow Hamburg Rooted Parsley:

It's easy to grow!

Grow plants in full sun to partial shade.

Before planting, work the soil to a foot deep, removing rocks, sticks and debris. If the soil is hard, add ample amounts of loam, compost, or peat moss. This will allow the roots to grow down into the soil, unimpeded.

Soil should be rich, and well drained.

Keep soil moist, not wet. Dry soils will cause the roots to fork and split.

Add a general purpose fertilizer once a month during the growing season.

Thin plants to 6 inches apart.

Keep plants well weeded, especially while they are young.
