Celery – Green Utah
An easy to grow variety of celery
This variety of celery forms crisp green stalks. It doesn’t need to be blanched as it grows – it is a ‘self-blanching’ variety. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry, because all it basically means is that you don’t need to do anything other than pop the plants in the ground and keep them well watered throughout the growing season. There is loads of advice in the growing guide that comes with the plug plants.
Number of plants: 10 plug plants
Variety: Green Utah (organic*)
In the kitchen: Delicious used raw in salads, or for using to dip into hummus. Celery is equally delicious if braised or chopped in casseroles or a fish pie, adding a different texture to your dish. Use the leaves and any older tougher stalks to make stock.

Planting/Growing Advice: Plant plugs in spring/summer approx 15cm apart in planters, raised beds, pots, containers or grow bags.
