Celery Leaf (Apium graveolens)Herb Seeds

Celery Leaf, or Apium graveolens is a fully hardy biennial plant that produces aromatic, fresh leaves with a strong flavour of celery. Also known as Wild Celery, this attractive plant will send up furrowed stalks in its second year of life, which hold tiny green-white flowers. Celery Leaf prefers Full sun but will tolerate semi-shade and likes a free-draining soil. A really lovely addition to the herb garden, and often overlooked, although its uses are myriad(see herb usage)

Growing Instructions

Celery seeds can be sown indoors from December to June under glass. Sow on the surface of a free draining, moist seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place in a propagator or seal the container inside a polythene bag at a constant temperature of 15-18C (59-64F) until after germination which takes up to 21 days. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, carefully transplant them into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in warm, bright conditions. When all risk of frost is passed gradually acclimatise celery plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting outdoors.

Alternatively, direct sow celery seeds outdoors from March to July into well prepared, rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Sow seeds thinly into drills at a depth of 1cm (1/2") deep and 15cm (6") apart. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them to 30cm (12") apart. For a successional harvest make regular sowings.

Herb Usage

The young leaves are lovely used in salads or to flavour soups and sauces, and there is some evidence of benefit to those who suffer from osteo-arthritis. Excellent used in cocktails and summer drinks too.
