This unique celery is a real culinary delight! The striped candy pink and green stalks shade to green leaves.

This intense, full-flavoured celery is perfect for any kitchen garden, with abundant yields of striped wide stalks.

Use the leaves and stalks for fresh seasoning all year. Tends to keep its colour when cooked. Very slow to bolt. Harvest outer stalks, and inner stalks will grow for later harvesting; features a long harvest period.

You can plant these in pots too and they look amazing mixed with flowers and herbs!

Grow Notes
Plant in full or part sun in well-drained soil. Once seedlings are big enough plant into the garden, in well drained soil enriched with compost, 30cms apart in 60cm rows. Or grow in containers.

Keep plants well-watered during dry periods to promote rapid, uninterrupted growth. Celery grows best when it has constant moisture, and relatively cool temperatures. It cannot tolerate high heat conditions. Pick outside stalks as required or tie celery plants together to prevent sprawling and to blanch the interior.

Sow
Raise seedlings in Spring or Autumn by planting seeds 3mm deep in seed raising mix.

Keep soil moist, not wet.

Be careful when transplanting as celery develops a tap root that is easily damaged.

Germination
14-21 days at 20-25°C
