The Q&A Archives: Container Growing Parsley

Question: I would like some tips on growing parsley in
containers, especially on what type of plant
food to use. Any information that you can give
me on container growing of parsley would really
be appreciated.

Answer: Parlsey will do well in containers but it needs at least 6-8 hours of full sun to perform. Use an organically rich soil and water when the top inch or so dries out. Parsley is a foliage plant, so use a nitrogen source, such as fish emulsion or alfalfa meal. If you prefer you can use a balanced fertilizer product such as 10-10-10. Fertilize every week or two. Pinch back the tips to keep the plant bushy.
