Step 10: Celery,Watering,Feeding,Planting,Growing Climates,Soil


Celery is a biennial and a member of the carrot family.
 This vegetable is a tight collection of green stalks reaching up to
10” tall.  Stalks, leaves, and seeds are edible. Note: Celery
is not one of the easier vegetables to grow though, as it requires
a fair amount of attention and space. 


  You should have   Alkaline or neutral soil 
this is  needed for growing celery. 
Mix lime in your garden bed
this will reduce the soil's acidity. 
For best growing results use
compost or manure well rotten.

                                 GROWING CLIMATES
        Celery grows best in mild or cool weather,
it does not grow well in cold weather.
Celery tolerates light shade ,wet weather
and Light frost only, damaged by hard freezes.

  Plant your celery seeds into garden bed
 temperatures are consistently over 55 degrees (F).
(the seed won't germinate well below this temperature). 
Sow your celery seeds  very shallow (about  1/10” deep)
cover with light soil, it is very importanten to keep the soil moist whlie
its  in 3 weeks of germination. Keep the roots moist by
mounding soil around the young plants.
For an earlyer start plant the celery seeds 12 weeks berfore planting outside.

     When you are growing your celery keep the soil moist not wet.
During the dry days water daily, Lack of water causes celery to
grow slowly and makes the stalks stringy.  

     Celery is a shallow root plant which means
it can not dig its roots deeper for more nuritions.
Fertilize every three weeks  with liquid fertilizer
after the celery seedlings are well and established.

For faster germination, try soaking the
celery seed in room-tempeture water for 1-2 days. Plant at once. 

<p>Thank you so much for sharing your vast knowledge. I'm very happy to have found it, I'm just starting my garden and will use your instructable as my guide.</p>
<p>Thanks so much. I am keeping that general advice under &quot;Gardening&quot; in my Documents folder so I can check it frequently. Now I know why my onions didn't do very well last year. They must have wanted more fertilizer! And it's great to know things like what can cause broccoli plants to go to seed without forming heads. </p>
Really good information. I am new to planting and I am doing it in containers as I live in an RV. Thank you.
These are some nice &amp; precise guidelines on how to grow vegetable plants. Being an avid gardener myself, I believe that the pH levels play a vital role for the overall development of your garden. There are various methods to check those <a href="http://www.rosebudmag.com/hydro-101/hydro-101-with-deonna-marie-ph-levels-in-indoor-growing" rel="nofollow">pH levels</a>. I use this pH perfect line of nutrients; which balances its pH for me in my garden.
It would be a good idea to put an equal amount of Dolomitic limestone and Pulverized limestone in the garden ever 2 or 3 years. Thanks for the comment.
Es muy buena tu informaci&Atilde;&sup3;n gracias, me gusta mucho.
Thank you and your welcome.
