Gardening is about finding the right balance! Try growing Companion Plants close by to help deter pests.

  • Leeks are a good companion plant to grow next to celery.
  • Bush French beans and celery grow well next to each other.
  • Cauliflower and cabbages are well suited companions also.

Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

Sow seeds thinly on the surface of damp compost in a seed tray, cover with clean polythene or glass to retain moisture. Do not cover the tiny seeds. Keep the compost moist but do not overwater. When the seedlings start to merge move to an area with good daylight exposure and remove the clear covering. 4 - 5 weeks later prick out the strongest seedlings into 4 cm modules. The compost must not be allowed to dry out.
When the young plants have 3 - 4 true leaves plant out into their final growing position. Plant at the distance suggested above. Self blanching varieties must be planted in square blocks rather than in a single row. By doing this the crowded plants will shade each others stems from direct sunlight, keeping the stems a pale colour and less bitter in flavour. Firm the soil around each plant and water well.

Direct Sowing

It is not advisable to sow direct in the soil.

Growing On

The roots of celery plants are very shallow and therefore will need watering regularly especially in dry weather. To help with moisture retention in the soil, mulch the bed with compost before the hot summer days arrive. Celery is a hungry crop and will benefit from a liquid feed. The leaves of the comfrey plant when steeped in water for a few days makes a nutrient dense organic fertilizer ideal for giving the vegetable garden a boost.


Self blanching varieties can be harvested as required however they are best eaten when young. All of the self blanching varieties will need to be picked before the first autumn frosts arrive as they are not hardy. Harvest the outer plants first in the block, lifting the whole plant, taking care not to disturb its neighbours. Celery will store in the fridge in a polythene bag for 2 - 3 weeks.


The leaves of the Comfrey plant can be used to make a nutrient rich liquid fertilizer ideal for giving celery a nutrient boost.
