Seed Details:
Delicious and colourful addition to the average vegetable garden or dinner plate, because of its striking colour. Great in soups, salads and stir-fry or just on its own as a snack or garnish.
Direct seed 2 mm deep. Red Celery is heavy on water and nutrients but worth the effort. Store-bought celery tastes nothing like that which you grow yourself. Use plenty of compost and mulch around the plants to retain moisture.
Moist,well-drained, nutrient-rich soils. Really appreciate compost and mulch.
The Latin name Apium was derived from a prehistoric Indo-European word for water. Celery grows best with an abundance of water and has proven its preference for a moist location with its history of growing in salty marshes and wet soils.
Historic Uses:
Known for its use in pharmacology to effectively relieve gas pains. A 17th-century herbalist Nichols Culpeper proved that the leaves when eaten in the Spring helps to purify the blood.
