A favourite in the garden and kitchen, celery is relatively easy to grow, as long as you follow a few simple steps. Celery requires full sun and well-enriched soil. A good fertiliser like Talborne Vita Grow at planting is essential, and then at 6 weeks, Talborne Vita Green will see you through to harvest.
Good watering is the number one secret to thick, tasty, tender stems. This is especially true during hot weather where a few water-stressed days can put paid to your harvest. This is where a good, thick mulch will help to ensure your success.
Blanching is a personal preference and we prefer the stronger flavour of unblanched celery.
