How to Grow

Celery likes rich well drained soil and ample water to ensure lush growth for a better textured stem. Sow seeds into pots and cover seed with 1-2mm of soil. Transplant to the garden at 3-5cm high and keep well fed. Harvest stems from 40 days as young stems. Allow to grow to full size after 80-90 days. Space plants 30cm apart. Ensure celery is planted in a fertile position to ensure lush green growth for best stems. To get super crunchy stringless stems it is recommended to blanch stems for 3 weeks prior to harvesting. Blanching is a simple process that restricts light getting to the stalks causing the plant to quickly elongate with soft new growth. To blanch simply tie the celery stalks into a tight bunch then wrap the lower 2/3 or the plant in 3-4 layers of newspaper so the top of the plant in the only part exposed to the sun. This can also be achieved with a used milk carton that has had the bottom and top of the carton cut out - Simply slip the carton over the celery plant for the same affect. Your tender celery stems will be ready to harvest in 2-3 weeks time.
