In fact, some gardeners prefer to let the seeds bloom into a shrub, rather than planting them directly into the ground. When they are sown into seeds early in the morning, they begin to germinate within a few hours. At this time, the sprouts can be clogged with soil and protected from wind. Over the next few weeks, the roots will continue to develop until they are strong enough to root in the soil on their own.
Some Parsley seeds will continue to grow for the entire summer before flowering for the first time. As the plant matures, the flower buds will appear and the foliage will change color. As the plant develops, it moves through the stages of leaf growth, turning colors from green to golden in the late summer before flowering in the fall. The longest lived of the stages is called the growth cycle, and Parsley seeds can be used to determine the stage of growth for each plant.
