Aromatic & flavorful!

  • Rich green stalks of tall celery are folded around a compact heart.
  • The 12 inch stalks are tender yet crisp, and remain string-less.
  • Stalks are eaten raw or cooked.
  • Leaves make a delicious seasoning in soups and can be frozen for later use.

SPECIFICS: (see below for complete sowing information)

  • SEED DEPTH: 1/8 inch soil-less mix (such as seed starting mixes with peat, coir, perlite, vermiculite, etc.)
  • SEED SPACING: n/a
  • EMERGES: 15-20 days
  • MATURES: 100 days

SOWING:

  • Plant seeds indoors 10 weeks before frost free date for your ares.
  • Cover with 1/8 inch of soil-less mix and water well.
  • Keep mix consistently moist (not wet) until first true leaves appear.

GERMINATION:

  • Germinates in 15-20 days depending on temperature and moisture.
  • Celery seed likes warm daytime soil but cooler nighttime temperature.
  • Using a heat mat set at 70-degrees on a 12 hour timer will improve germination.

THINNING:

  • When plants are 2-4 inches high and danger of frost is past, transplant into the garden 15 inches apart.

NOTES:

  • Celery is a thirsty plant and will turn "stringy" if the soil around the plant is allowed to dry out.
  • Water consistently with 2-3 inches per week.
  • Celery is bi-annual and if left in the ground will bolt to a large umbel flower the second season, attracting many beneficial insects.
