Originating from the Mediterranean, used medicinally by ancient Greeks, developed in 16th century in France. The secret to fresh crisp stalks is plenty of manure and water, don't let soil dry out as it has shallow roots. Blanch stalks with mulch or cardboard tubes.

Pick individual stems as required.

Celery is a biennial, which conditions it will only flower and set seed in its second year of growth.

Prefers cool conditions. While growing, which will take about 4 months to reach maturity, feed the plant with lots of liquid fertilisers (fish emulsion, compost teas, worm pee, etc.), Because of its shallow root system and high water content celery needs to be kept well watered and well mulched. Stores well at cool temperatures and high humidity. Sow in spring and autumn.
