Of all the greens, summer residents pay special attention to parsley, which is valued for its special taste and aroma, as well as its vitamin composition.
The most important thing is that, despite all its unique properties, parsley grows almost like wild plants and there are no difficulties with it. The main thing is to choose the optimal date for landing.
In this article, we will talk about the best time in spring to sow parsley in open ground.
Although parsley is not afraid of cold weather, it is better to sow it after the soil has warmed up thoroughly.
Depending on the climate and weather, this can be from early to mid-April.

And in May, parsley can be planted on the 4th, as well as from the 22nd to the 24th.
The calendar recommends sowing root parsley from April 7 to 9, as well as April 17 and 18.
There are a few more favorable days in May: 6-9, 13-15, and also May 17.
