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.
