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.
