I want to grow and harvest curly parsley, and also have them produce seeds for the next harvest. I found plenty of information on growing curly parsley but nothing on flowering, pollinating, or harvesting seeds. So I have some questions about that:
- How should parsley be grown to produce seeds?
- What is the timeline from seed to seed? Eg time from planting to germination to flowering to seed harvest?
- How many seeds can a single seed/plant be expected to produce?
- Can a single plant be harvested for both garnish and seeds, or is it mutually exclusive?
Edit: I am also considering growing them indoors with hydroponics to produce year-round, maximise yield and perhaps speed up cycles - how could the natural cycle (eg seasons) be simulated? Ie how does parsley determine when to move to the next stage? Type of light? Strength of light? Number of hours of light per day?
