Q.Why my Parsley won’t grow

Zone Thibodaux,La. deap south | waynemire added on October 17, 2016 | Answered

I have tried to grow parsley from seed many times. Put them on top of ground and wet them, covered them. Tried planting them about a 1/2 inch down and wetting them. But nothing. How do I grow parsley?
