18°C to 26°C

Fertilizer

Provide fertilizer once the first true leaves emerge. The first set of leaves that appear are known as the seed leaves. The second set of leaves are the first ‘true leaves,’ and a sign that your plant is getting mature and ready for serious growth. Dilute a balanced fertilizer to ¼ the strength recommended. Fertilize once in 2 weeks.

Product Bio

Growing celery (Apium graveolens) is generally considered to be the ultimate vegetable gardening challenge. It has a very long growing season but a very low tolerance for both heat and cold. There isn’t much flavor difference between the home grown variety and the store bought variety so most gardeners grow a celery plant purely for the challenge. Read on to find out more about the best way to grow celery in your garden.

Because a celery plant has such a long maturity time, unless you live in a location with long growing seasons, you need to start celery seeds indoors at least eight to 10 weeks before the last frost date for your area. Celery seeds are tiny and tricky to plant. Try mixing them with sand and then sprinkle the sand-seed mix over the potting soil. Cover the seeds with just a little bit of soil. Celery seeds like to be planted shallowly. Once the celery seeds have sprouted and are large enough, either thin the seedlings or prick them out to their own pots.

Once the temperatures outside are consistently above 50 F. (10 C.), you can plant your celery into your garden. Remember that celery is very temperature sensitive, so don’t plant it out too early or you will kill or weaken the celery plant. Unless you live in a location that is ideal to grow celery plants, plant your celery where it will get six hours of sun, but preferably somewhere that the celery plant will be shaded for the hottest part of the day. Also, make sure that where you will be growing celery has rich soil. Celery needs lots of nutrients to grow well.

A growing celery plant needs a lot of water. Make sure to keep the soil evenly moist and don’t forget to water them. Celery can’t tolerate drought of any kind. If the ground isn’t kept consistently moist, it will negatively affect the taste of the celery. You’ll also need to fertilize regularly to keep up with the nutrient needs of the celery plant.
