Caring for Celery Cutting Leaf Common

- Add plenty of compost and mulch around the plants to retain moisture.
- Fertilize regularly. Add mulch as needed, to help retain soil moisture and add nutrients.
- Tie growing celery stalks together to keep them from sprawling.
- The parts of celery that are harvested are mainly the stalks, which will be above ground. Harvest stalks from the outside in.
- You may begin harvesting when stalks are about 8 inches tall.
- Celery can be kept in the garden for up to a month if soil is built up around it to maintain an ideal temperature.
