Play with Your Parsley and Plants

I know it sounds weird. The actual term would be to stimulate your transplants but either way you say it - it sounds odd. The truth is that without stimulation of wind and motion your seedlings and transplants will be weak. Moving your hand across your plants is important. It stimulates normal development. Some growers use fans to move wind across their transplants. That is a great idea... but you do have to make sure you keep an eye on moisture. Wind not only stimulates strong stem development it also evaporates water. Touching your plants daily and moving them will help them develop.
