Also covered in this section is P. c. var. radicosum the hamburg or turnip-rooted parsley. Parsley is grown for its leaves while hamburg parsley is grown for its roots. The plants are grown in full sun and in any good garden soil. Hamburg parsley may be better on sandy soil. Plant the seed 1 inch deep, in April or July, in rows 12 inches apart. Thin to 9 inch spacings. Parsley seed germinates slowly so a light mulch may be beneficial. Parsley may need to be side dressed to keep it growing.
Harvest the leaves when they are at the proper stage for the intended use. The roots of hamburg rooted parsley are ready in October.
