Celery & Celeriac Plants
Celery is a versatile vegetable which is superb eaten raw in salads with some soft cheese in the middle or used in cooking and to flavour stock. The leaves can be used in soups or in herb salads or as a garnish!
Celery is grown for their crisp and flavoursome stems, which can be blanched by earthing up to give them an attractive white appearance. It’s far easier to grow celery from pre grown plants as the seeds have a low germination rate.
Celeriac plants are a relative of Celery, the difference being you grow Celeriac for its roots rather than the greens. Grown in exactly the same way you will have superb results as they are not as fussy as Celery plants.
Celeriac is becoming very popular for its nutty celery-like flavour and for its versatility. Try it grated into autumn salads, cooked and mashed with potatoes or roasted with other mixed root vegetables.
