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.

Common name: Apium graveolens
Height: 8 inches tall.
Difficulty level: Easy

Planting & Care
Because a celery plant has such a long maturity time, unless you live in a location with long growing seasons, you need to start celery seeds indoors at least 8 – 10 weeks before the last frost date for your area.

Sunlight: Full Sun, Part Sun

Soil: Any

Water: Keep soil moist throughout the growing season.

Temprature: 55 and 70ºF

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer.

Care:
  • Celery seeds should always be started indoors for the best success rate, 8 to 10 weeks before the average last frost date for your area.
  • For summer gardeners, a late summer direct sowing is possible.
  • Be sure that temps will stay between 55 and 70ºF throughout growing period.
  • The National Gardening Association recommends soaking seeds in warm water overnight prior to planting, to reduce germination time.
  • Work organic fertilizer or compost into the soil prior to planting.
  • Harden off seedlings before transplanting by reducing water slightly, and keeping them outdoors for a couple hours a day.
  • Transplant seedlings 10 to 12 inches apart, direct sow seeds ¼ inch deep.
  • These will need to be thinned to 12 inches apart when they reach about six inches high.
  • Mulch and water directly after planting.


Harvesting: 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.

Care:
  • Celery is a heavy feeder.
  • It also requires lots of water.
  • Make sure to provide plenty of water during the entire growing season, especially during hot, dry weather.
  • If celery does not get enough water, the stalks will be dry, and small.
  • 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.


Special Feature:
There is not much flavor difference between the home grown variety and the store bought variety so most gardeners grow a celery plant purely for the challenge it poses.
Use
Medicinal use:
  • Celery is an excellent source of vitamin K and molybdenum.
  • It is a very good source of folate, potassium, dietary fiber, manganese, and pantothenic acid.
  • Celery is also a good source of vitamin B2, copper, vitamin C, vitamin B6, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids).

Culinary use:
  • It is a popular addition to salads and many cooked dishes.
  • Add celery leaves and sliced celery stalks to soups, stews, casseroles, and healthy stir fries.
