Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
Italian flat parsley, though native to Mediterranean climates, is a versatile plant, able to thrive in a range of environments. Plant seeds in well-drained soil, ensuring they receive moderate sunlight. While initially requiring regular watering, the plant becomes more drought-tolerant as it matures, making it relatively low-maintenance. Space seeds or seedlings approximately 10-12 inches apart to allow ample room for growth and to ensure each plant receives adequate nutrients from the soil.
