Description: This is a super strong grower, producing multiple growing heads so the plant gets very large. The stems remain red but reddest in the sun, the taste is stronger than other celery and is not as thick stems but very good to eat, and very easy to grow. Like other celery requires water and nutrients to do best.
Planting Instructions: Plant in November – early March in a seed tray and cover with 1mm of seed raising mix. Prick out when second leaves appear to 2.5cm diagonal spacing. Transplant when 8cm high. Loves free draining soil, lots of water, seaweed and fish fertiliser.
