How long do parsley seeds take to germinate and are they an easy plant to grow from seed? I am thinking of sowing some seeds tomorrow, and then successively over the next few months.

Not sure about this question. Parsley isn't normally grown in succession as it lasts throughout the season.....successional sowing of lettuce, yes.

As parsley is notoriously difficult to germinate, I presume you intend to sow in a heated greenhouse, as temps required will need to be around 10c......sow outdoors in early June, that's assuming you are in the UK.

Have no axe to grind on this particular subject, but I will say that I have voluntarily asked for sweet pea threads to be locked and started new ones, on the basis they were proving difficult to follow.

Frank, with respect there was probably more rubbish 'music' around in those early days (could name some) than there is today.

For myself, I try to be flexible and enjoy music from across the spectrum.

There are several versions, Lily.....this is one of them:


Btw, he's doesn't play drums anymore because of muscle damage to his arms over the years.
