Celery and Celeriac seeds

Celery tall Utah

Growing suggestions

If you can start celery seeds with heat in February that is ideal, otherwise unheated in March will be fine. You should sow seeds into large modules or small pots and planted 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, so be sure to water them in dry weather.

Celeriac needs a long season to produce decent-sized roots.

    Celeriac – Ibis (Organic)

    £2.20

    Celeriac – Ibis (Organic)

    Fast growing smooth skinned celeriac that has good storing qualities and disease tolerance. Ibis is a vigourous 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 are celeriac schnitzel and battered and pan-fried and celeriac chips with curry powder.

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

  • Celery - Tall Utah

    Celery – Tall Utah (Organic)

    £1.50

    Celery – Tall Utah (Organic)

    A classic variety of celery producing thick crunchy stalks with compact hearts. 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 very reliable variety to this day.
