Cutting Celery

Price: $ 5.00

Apium graveolens
Excellent dwarf celery for growing as a herb in pots or in the garden.  Grows like italian (flat leaf) parsley but has a celery flavour.  Use the stems and leaves as for normal celery – in salads, soups and stews.  Commercially grown celery is one most pesticide-contaminated vegetable crops, so it's great to grow your own at home. Celery is low in carbohydrates and calories and high in potassium – so good for the heart and muscles. Celery seeds can be used as flavouring or spice, either as whole seeds or ground and mixed with salt. Prefers a sunny spot.  Hardy annual. Usual height approx 45cm, though I have seen it well over a metre high in a mound of horse manure!  See also Celery Tall Utah
