Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
    Growing Instructions:

    Start celery seeds indoors 10 to 12 weeks before the last frost in your area. Follow the seed depth and spacing guidelines indicated below. Once all danger of frost has passed, seedlings should be hardened off before planting in their growing location. Seedlings should be transplanted according to the plant and row spacing directions below. Regularly monitor your plants and ensure that the soil remains moist, but not soggy while they establish themselves in their new environment.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Growing Suggestions:
  • Celery does not do well in hot weather and this too may affect stalk production and circumference growth. Try putting a milk carton, with the bottom cut out, around plants to shield them from the hot sun.
  • Always soak the soil thoroughly when watering because celery has a small, shallow root system. Any water stress during the growing season causes the stalks to become stringy and gives them a strong flavor.
  • Celery’s slow growth and small root system does not compete well with weeds. Frequent, shallow cultivation will control weeds and keep the soil surface loose. Because the roots of the celery are very close to the surface, do not cultivate too deeply.
  • Plants are ready to use when they are 7 cm (3" ) or more in diameter. Celery harvested in hot, dry weather may be tough, stringy, and bitter.
