A pot/container that can hold about two quarts of soil
A small canister (empty coffee can, old plant pot) that can be used for the drainage at the bottom.
Enough good quality potting mix to fill your container up and dampen it with water. If you are using a canister make sure there is plenty of room so that when we add parsley seedlings they don’t get smushed by all the dirt!
Parsley seeds- this part will require some patience because parsley takes around three weeks in order to grow but then give you an abundance of leaves from which to harvest. You’ll need four or five seeds per canister/pot depending on how large you want your plants to be. Keep them well watered and be patient!
A can of spray paint
Odds and Ends (empty can, broken pot) to use as a stand for the canister/pot.
