|I have saved several stems of Parsley and wonder if I should have cut them just before they dried off as I think I may have lost the seed|

|Parsley growing in your garden? Did you let the seed mature? Parsley is one of those plants that reseeds enthusiastically.

|Welcome to NGA, @rayobrien .
I agree that parsley will reseed -- but it is a biennial, meaning that it doesn't (normally) flower and form seed until the 2nd year that it's been growing.
Ray, when you say that you "saved several stems" -- they were the flower stalks, right? (if you're unsure, there are photos of the flowers here: Italian Parsley (Petroselinum crispum 'Italian Flat Leaf') )
