You may begin harvesting Parsley when your plant is about 6 inches tall. It is best to pick the stems from the outside of the plant to allow new growth in the center. Parsley can be harvested with scissors or by hand. Give the plant a week or more to recover before heavily harvesting again. Since it may take a while for new growth to reach harvesting size, you may want to harvest in stages to ensure a steady crop. Harvesting in the morning is best for most herbs. Be sure that the dew on the leaves has dried.
