Watering tips

Water in well after planting. Then, you must water them thoroughly in periods of dry weather and keep plants well mulched.

Weed with care!

Clear away any emerging weeds regularly. When hoeing draw soil away from the plants rather than earthing them up as you would for celery.

Remove side shoots

Remove any side shoots that appear off the sides of the vegetable (you only want to let the main vertical shoots grow)

Storage Tips

Celeriac will keep pretty well in a cool, dark place once harvested.

Ways to cook

You can use celeriac anywhere where you are using potatoes really – add it to mash or slice it up in a creamy dauphinoise style sauce. Great for soups and stews too.
