Celery and Celeriac Seeds

Celery tall UtahGrowing suggestions for celery seeds

Ideally, start celery and celeriac seeds with heat in February. Otherwise unheated in March is fine. Sow seeds into large modules or small pots and plant out at final spacing in May. Harden off and cover with fleece to protect from cold after planting. Celery and celeriac are evolved from a marsh plant and are therefore very thirsty. Be sure to water them in dry weather. Celeriac needs a long season to produce decent-sized roots.

    Celery – Tall Utah (Organic)

    A classic variety of celery producing thick crunchy stalks . We love the deep green colour of this celery and its super-crunchy string-less stalks. It was first introduced in the USA in 1953 and was the outcome of a breeding program by the Ferry Morse Seed Company in California. It was developed to be resistant to many common diseases of celery, and remains a reliable variety to this day.

    Celeriac – Ibis (Organic)

    Fast growing smooth skinned celeriac with good storing qualities and disease tolerance. Ibis is a vigorous variety that produces smooth white skinned globes with a good dense interior. Its celery-like nutty mild taste enriches soups and stews and it tastes amazing when roasted or mashed. Our favourite recipes include celeriac schnitzel, battered and pan-fried and celeriac chips with curry powder.

    We’re selling particularly this variety because it has all the qualities you would want from a celeriac. Its smooth skin makes it easy to clean, it’s resistant to septoria, good for storing and is bolt-hardy which makes it suitable for early cultivation under protection.
