Is it even supposed to be this good?

So this was my first time growing celery and I was psyching myself out because all the YouTube videos complained about how fickle celery is and how difficult it is to grow but my first attempt with Hadrian was an incredible success. My germination was roughly 50% but of the seeds that did grow… well they grew vigorously. They seem really tolerant to longer periods of poor watering (I’m a lazy gardener, it’s survival of the fittest around here) and they produced incredible tasting celery stalks, flavor in a completely different league from the grocery store celery.

Did I get lucky or is this a great variety? I don’t have the experience to say for sure but it makes me feel like a garden rock star to produce celery with such ease and I’m going to try to replicate my success next year.

Apium graveolens var. dulce Long known as an unsurpassable diet food, celery stalks contain 94% water and only 15 calories in 2 medium stalks. Surprisingly, celery contains about a dozen antioxidants as well as about 37% daily value of vitamin K in 1 cup. Enjoy it in 3 forms: its leaf, the stalks, and the swollen rootstock we know as celeriac.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of transplanting.

• Celery and celeriac are water-loving plants and do best in fertile, well-drained soil, with a pH of 6.0-7.0
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 5 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• For consistent growth, fertilize regularly with Age Old Grow, and maintain even soil moisture
• Mulch around plants with clean straw to preserve soil moisture
• Weather fluctuations and temperatures below 55°F can cause celery to bolt

Direct Sowing
• Not recommended

• Sow indoors 10-12 weeks before anticipated transplant date
• Avoid planting too early before weather has stabilized

Insects & Diseases
• Common insects: Carrot fly
• Insect control: Row covers at planting
• Disease prevention: Crop rotation, adequate water supply, and insect control
