It is not so much, cover the stalks but protect the side stalks. Celery is best grown close to each other in rows. This then blocks out the sun from the side stalks. With lots of sunlight the side stalks become very green and bitter. Usually you trim these off the plants when harvesting them. Or protect the sides from the sun and then you can eat these stalks also. It is ridicules what nurseries and Bunnings etc sell in the wrong time of the year. Go to "Seed Collection Pty Ltd" and find their planting guide for Veg, flowers, herbs.
