Why this distance and not more? In the garden, if you were planting in a bed, the distance between bushes should be 20-25 cm.

For reference: 1 g contains 700 to 1000 parsley seeds.

Now I found out that in Russia, of all the greenhouse vegetables that you and I buy in winter, only 17% are grown in Russia. The rest are imported. And, as you know, they import all sorts of rubbish to us, like in a third-world country.) So it’s better to grow our own. My point: gardeners and gardeners, it’s time to revive the industry!
Water your homemade “bed” with hot water and lightly tamp it down.
