Growing Celery


Celery requires a cool growing season and rich moist soil. Set plant in a trench 4 to 5 inches deep and fill in with soil as plant grows. If further blanching (whitening) is desired, hill plants by mounding additional soil around their bases. Apply soluble plant food every 2 to 3 weeks.

I don't think any of my celery came up. I'll try again with the method you laid out. I need to plant some indoors too I think.

Often I wish I had green fingers, but alas mine are for anything but the garden...well...a different kind of garden, perhaps! ;.)

Enjoyed reading through. It's about working smarter, not harder. Amazing how easy it is to overlook basic common sense in our everyday life. It really adds up.

I have some gardening tips on my blog but the celery post is good. Its surprising how small things can be the difference between a garden propering or not.
