Remove side shoots

As the plants develop cut off the side shoots so that they shoot straight upwards.

Feed them if growing in pots

If your celery is growing in containers or pots, it’s best to add a liquid feed every 2 weeks.

Keep them well watered

Celery needs moist soil to grow successfully, so make sure you give them plenty of water and don’t let them dry out.

Storage Tips

Celery will keep well in the fridge but it’s best to harvest as you want to use it.

Ways to cook

As well as being good in salads, celery is great for making stock – make a mirepoix by roughly chopping celery, carrots, onions and leeks, and boil these either on their own for half an hour for a veggie stock, or add them towards the end of chicken stock.
