(Best months for growing Celery in USA - Zone 5a regions)
S = Plant undercover in seed trays T = Plant out (transplant) seedlings
Most varieties improve with blanching but there are some self-blanching varieties available. To Blanch: plant in trenches 15- 20 cm (6-8 in) deep and 20cm (8in) apart. Leave about 40 cm (17 in) between rows. Fill the trenches gradually and keep well watered as the plants grow. The plants can be lifted to use, as needed after about 11 weeks. Alternatively wrap the plants in sleeves of paper or black plastic.
Celery needs moist fertile soil.
Chop and use raw in salad or braised in hot dishes.
