Today, I bought a tray of celery plants, ready to transplant into my garden. Celery is not the easiest plant to grow, but a couple of years ago, I learned that it is a vegetable that is totally different when grown in the garden and eaten fresh from there.
The following tells how to plant celery:
1. Plant directly in a raised bed, filled with pure compost
2. Supplement the soil with an equal mix of epsom salt, bone meal, and blood meal [or Trifecta]
3. Full Sun
4. Plant seed starts not seeds
5. If more than one plant is in the start, pinch out extra plants. You only want 1 plant per space.
6. Plant about 1 foot apart
7. When the plant has doubled itself, blanch the stalks by pulling dirt around the stalks–only allowing the leaves to show
