When your Parsley plant starts to go to seed, you should be sure not to harvest too soon. Some people will simply save their Parsley seeds until they have a full grown plant to add to their garden. Others will harvest as soon as the plant starts to bloom, or as soon as it is ready. However you choose to store your Parsley seeds, remember that you want to keep the plant safe and happy.

After you have finished shaking out your parsley seeds, grab a glass and fill it with cold water and let the seeds soak for about an hour before you are ready to use them.
