Yes, I would pull up the parsley ( I think it is technically a biennial ? I may be wrong ) I buy the pots of parsley you get in the supermarket, and I split it up into several plants and put it in the ground. Depending on the weather that usually works well for me.

I used to do what Sive does with a little twist. I always let unused parsley go to seed and self propogate. It is a biennial. So we [humans] use the fresh greenery of the first year's growth for our white sauce. Self propogation has the advantage that you can hunt for parsley in the garden and always find it. I do this with curly, flat-leaf, thyme, chives, even basil but that has to be protected against night cold.
