Description:
Amazingly versatile and easier to grow than standard celery. A versatile ingredient for salads, soups, stews, and vegetable medleys. Can be marketed in bunches or salad mixes. Also known as leaf celery. Sturdy dark green foliage has rich aroma and taste, regenerates quickly after cutting. Imparts the same flavor to stews and soups as conventional celery. Although its culture is the same, it is much hardier and easier to grow. Both its thin hollow stems and its leaves can be used fresh or dried.

Growing Instructions:
Direct seed in spring after the last frost. Sow seeds shallowly, 30 seeds per foot in rows 18" apart. There is no need to thin when the seeds are direct seeded. If starting indoors to transplant, seeds require some light to germinate, so sow shallowly. Use individual plug containers and plant several seeds in each plug. Thin, if necessary, to 2 or 3 plants per plug. Transplant plugs into the field at a 6" spacing in rows 18" apart. Prefers fertile, well watered soil and full to partial shade. Leaves and stalks may be harvested once the plants have become established and before flowering occurs. Cut the plants 3/4 way down the stems, so that they can continue growing.
