2

This hardy annual can be used in place of celery and is easier to grow. The fine green leaves and thin hollow stems are especially good to flavor soups and stews. Grows about 18 inches tall. Both stocks and leaves are cut at a younger, more tender stage than regular celery.  50 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- 10-12 weeks before last frost, soak seeds 24 hours, plant 1/4” deep. Keep soil at 70-75 degrees and moist. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant after last frost 8-12” apart.

Harvest- The stalks over 8-10”, from outside in. Entire plant late summer through the fall.

Tips- A heavy feeder. Add compost to planting area then fertilize regularly, mulch and keep moist.

Good germ seed!

Planted in 128 plug trays, about a month later re-potted into 4" rounds. Really took off as soon as it hit the bigger pot!

Afina Cutting Celery

I purchased these seeds about 4 years ago and have been growing them from saved seeds ever since. They can withstand a cold winter better than Golden Self-Blanching or Utah Tall. I am in Zone 6b which is lower Middle Tennessee. It is not unusual to brush the snow off and see them growing undamaged underneath. I start the seeds in the spring and they will last through the winter then go to seed in the following summer. They also multiply and grow wider. Last fall I took them and divided them with friends. I replanted them in late September and they lived. I don't recommend doing that but I wanted my friends to see how well they grow during the winter. My soil is not great. I have never bothered fertilizing and they still did fine. After they are established, I don't bother watering unless there is a drought. The stalks are pencil thin and are best used in soups, salads, stir-fry or juicing. Flavor is stronger than store bought celery. It surprises people when they first taste it. I highly recommend for winter gardens.
