How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a little more compost. Place in warmth 10-15C (50-60F) and keep moist.

Row Spacing

45cm

Potting on/Thining Out

Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from bright sun. When large enough to handle, transplant 5cm (2in) apart into trays of potting compost

Hardening Off/Planting Out

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out in May or June. Allow 25cm (10in) between plants and 45cm (18in) between rows.

Aftercare

Keep well watered in dry spells. Celeriac does best under moist conditions.
