Growing Celery

So I saw this idea on Pinterest originally. ( I will try to track down the original, is at Chickens in the Garden). Anyways I thought it was fantastic, so I tried it & so far its working.

Growing Celery

Take your store bought celery. The one you used all the stalks on & are about to throw away in the trash. (Or in our case, to the animals.) Make a clean cut all the way across the top & a thin slice off the bottom. Put in water & it will start to grow.  When I have time, I am going to take this plant & put it in our garden. You plant it will stalk side up, just dig a small whole, fill it with water & set the end in the whole. Cover it with an inch or so of soil & water thoroughly. I plan on getting a whole row growing at different stages so I always have plenty of celery in the garden.

     The plant above is about a week old. I am so excited to grow my own celery & to propagate it out of the stuff I bought from the grocery store. I couldn’t help, but share. So next time don’t throw your celery in the trash, grow your own.

One thought on “Growing Celery

  1. I've tried doing that several times and it starts out great – then a few weeks after I put it in soil the bottom rots and quits growing. Discouraging. I hope you have better luck – maybe I'm doing something wrong. Can't wait to see how yours does.
