Planting root celery

Celery (its various types) is spread all over the world today. And if in ancient times it was considered a purely medicinal plant, then soon the taste qualities of this plant were also appreciated. So celery has become a seasoning for various dishes, as well as a fully-fledged component of them. Humanity has learned to use all parts of the plant: from the roots to the tips of the leaves. Root celery for many gardeners is the best solution, as it makes it possible to kill two birds with one stone. At the same time, the deciduous species has an unusable rhizome.

It is better to sow celery early, in February at home in prepared containers. It is also good to pre-soak the seeds in warm water. Planting root celery in open ground is carried out somewhere from mid-May, when the cold is already decisively receding.

For the successful formation of root crops, the soil must be regularly loosened and moistened. Top dressing also does not hurt, celery is very fond of diluted mullein. It is not necessary to set aside a separate bed for this culture. You can combine it with tomatoes, squash, bush squash. This will benefit both neighbors.

Celery is one of the longest-livers in the garden. In the fall, he begins to grow actively. You don't have to dig it out as long as the weather permits. Usually this is done from the very beginning of autumn, as needed, and by the end of October the beds are already empty.

Large root crops weigh half a kilo or even more. They make a spicy salad dressed with mayonnaise - a storehouse of vitamins, micro and macro elements. It is necessary to carefully eat this plant for pregnant women and people with high acidity, stomach ulcers, varicose veins and thrombophlebitis.

I did not know that it was necessary to plant seedlings in open ground, it was not possible to grow seeds, I will take it into account. In addition to mullein, what can you feed? Boiled celery puree can also be given to babies in the form of mashed potatoes from 6 months.

We have already planted celery root for seedlings. We plant about one bed every year for preparing salads for the winter. We do not make blanks, although this year we will probably try.

I plant a lot of root celery, because it is very useful. I make salads and multivitamin juices and drinks, teas and infusions with it in season. I freeze it for the winter. Although a friend cuts finely and mixes it with salt.

Dear Olga Mironovna Sveridova! We also cut the celery root into small cubes and mix with salt, put it in a glass jar for the winter. You can also dry, but do not overdry! It is important.

I like celery very much, especially in salads and as a seasoning for borscht. For three years in a row I have been trying to grow root celery in my country house, but it just doesn't work out. I read somewhere that it is necessary to sow it for seedlings almost in December. Can anyone share the secret of growing root celery?
