Sowing Time: April to June outdoors, or sow monthly from December to June under glass for a long cutting period.
Sowing Instructions: Sow on the surface of a free draining, moist 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 a constant temperature of 15-18C (59-64F) until after germination which takes up to 21 days.
Growing Instructions: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, carefully transplant them into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in warm, bright conditions. When all risk of frost is passed gradually acclimatise celery plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 14 days prior to planting outdoors.
