CELERY VICTORIA F1 - organic seeds
Apium graveolensSelf blanching summer celery. High in sodium & potassium traditionally used as diuretic.
Quick growing variety which is self blanching, slow to bolt from early plantings, with tall green stems. It is one the best flavoured celery varieties and has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM), which was reconfirmed in 2005.
Celery seeds require light to germinate therefore sow seeds thinly on the surface of moist compost in modules.
Keep the surface of the compost moist until after germination.
Celery prefers very rich, moisture-retentive and alkaline soils of around 6.5 pH, so soils that have had organic compost or manure added are well suited.
n late May to early June, after hardening off for 7 to 10 days, and when the plants have 5 to 6 leaves, plant out in block formation, with 20cm (8in) spacing between each plant and with the base of the stem (crown) at ground level. This will help the plants to blanch each other and encourage upright growth.
