    Have you tried buying it as a plant from a garden centre. I bought mine from there and it has done well. I struggle growing herbs from seeds.

    That's what I've found as well Thelma, I grow both flat and curly parsley in buckets and troughs then they get moved into shade when its hot. Love how parsley self seeds all over the place

    According to Goggle, you can grow parsley from cuttings - stems cut from the mother plant and put in water to root. Not tried it myself but it may be a way to keep parsley growing?
