A moderately frost hardy biennial that is grown in full sun and planted late spring through early summer. Start your seeds indoors 10-12 weeks before the last frost. Place several seeds per cell as germination is naturally low (50%) for all celery varieties. Light is required for seeds to germinate, so don't plant seeds too deeply into the soil. Celery seedlings will bolt if exposed to temps below 55 F. Plant Seeds: 1/16" deep in pots and transplant into the garden after last frost, 8-14" apart with 2' between rows. Soil Temp: 50-70 F. Days to Sprout: 10-20. Thin To/Mature Plant Spacing: 8-14". Companions: bush beans, brassicas, onions, parsley and tomato. Seeds/oz: 75,000. Yield/100' row: 100 heads. Days to Harvest: 100-120. Seed Viability: 4-5 years.
