Parsley plant is growing out of control! What is the best way to harvest this plant? Should I cut at a certain point above the soil or this a one time and done type of plant? Basically I want to use the parsley and want it to regrow if possible. From what I've read on the web I should just cut what I need 1 inch above the soil...is this correct? How many times can I cut before it stops regrowing? Any more info is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
We grow ours in earth boxes with a fence around it as the wild life seems eat it if they can get at it.
If you still have extra it can be cut and dried for use this winter.
Parsley is a biannual which means it grows for two years and flowers the second year. It is hardy here in zone 5 so we let it winter over outside. I over seed the current plants so that we have a continued crop of parsley.
