How to sow
Sow celery seeds from February to April on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place in a propagator or seal the container inside a polythene bag at constant temperature of 21-25C (70-77F) until after germination, which takes up to 15 days.
Transplant when large enough to handle into trays or individual modules. Grow on steadily in cooler conditions before planting out after all risk of frost has passed, allowing 30cm (12in) between plants each way and making sure that the crown of the plant sits at ground level. It is essential plants are kept adequately moist throughout the growing season. If grown in a block, plants are naturally self blanching.
