Je plante des tomates et "du persil"

Why not des persils like des tomates?

For example: Je plante des tomates et des persils ?

Hi Amir, 

For herbs, because they are uncountable, it will be du, de la et de l'.

e.g.

de l'estragon (some) tarragon

du basilic (some) basil

de la coriandre = ( some) coriander

Talking about planting,  it will be -

des plants de persil, de coriandre, de basilic, etc.

Hope this helps!
