Question: How many parsley plants can I put in a 16 inch diameter container? I have a container that is 16 inches in diameter and about 10 inches deep. I would like to plant parsley in it, but I don't know how many I should put. (I'd like as many as it can handle but not so many that they don't survive).

Answer: I usually plant 3 in a 12" pot so you should be able to get 5 in the larger 16", one in the center and four at 'compass points' around it. Of course, the variety has a lot to do with it; some grow wider than others. Good luck and enjoy!
