Well-grown celery requires a constant supply of moisture and food, performing best in well limed soils. For early crops sow under glass but for later sowings outdoor seedbeds are suitable. Depth of sowing should not exceed 1-2 mm. When transplanting, take care not to cover up the heart. Plant rows in pairs 20 cm apart with a similar distance between plants. 2400 s/g
