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.

Culture
• 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

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

Insects & Diseases
