Celery Growing Tips

Celery requires a cool growing season and rich moist soil. Set plant in a trench 4 to 5 inches deep and fill in with soil as plant grows. If further blanching (whitening) is desired, hill plants by mounding additional soil around their bases. Apply soluble plant food every 2 to 3 weeks.

key phrase... moist soil. Celery is actually a bog plant so keep it well watered or the result is a tough stringy crop.
