Sowing: Celery grows best as a fall crop in most climates, so start your seeds about 10 weeks before the last spring frost. Soak them overnight to speed germination, then sow them in a flat in rows 1" apart; keep the soil moist and keep the flat out of direct sun. Germination often takes two or three weeks.
Also asked, what is the best way to grow celery?
- Celery requires lots of water.
- Add plenty of compost and mulch around the plants to retain moisture.
- Keep celery weeded but be careful when weeding as celery has shallow roots and could easily get distrubed.
- Tie growing celery stalks together to keep them from sprawling.
Subsequently, question is, is it hard to grow celery? In fact, it is quite easy to grow, but has some very specific needs. Give it plenty of water and a good rich soil, and you can have a supply of celery from midsummer into late fall. If you allow the soil to dry out, you will get celery, but it will be tough, bitter and chewy – more fit for cows than people.
In this manner, how long does it take to grow celery?

Celery does not like hot weather and will grow best if started indoors. Plant your seeds indoors, 10 to 12 weeks before setting outside. Transplant them in the garden when plants are at least 6" tall and when soil temperature is above 55 F. Harden off before planting in the garden.
