Celery is a long-season crop that can be tricky to grow, some might say, the trickiest of all. 1 packet contains 100 seeds of celery.
Celery will not tolerate heat and can be hard to transplant. Summer crops in the north and winter crops in the south make celery a year-round producer. All the work is worth it when you harvest crunchy, green stalks.
- The slender stems and leaves of immature celery plants can be grown as a cutting herb. Use just a few leaves instead of mature celery stems to flavour soups and stews or use in salads and garnishes. Grow some cutting celery on the windowsill for a constant supply of tasty fresh young leaves
- Water celery plants frequently, particularly during hot dry periods. Harvest sprigs of celery leaves as and when required to flavour soups, stews and salads. Cutting Celery should be cut regularly to promote fresh growth
