Full Answer

Parsley grows best in nutrient-rich soil that is moist and drains well. Plants thrive in a location with 6 to 8 hours of sun as well as shade. Parsley thrives indoors when placed in pots that contain holes for good drainage and located in a place that receives bright light. Parsley is a slow-growing plant, but once it is established, snipping the parsley from the stems encourages the plant to produce new growth.
