Celery Green Sleeves Seeds
Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Indoors March to May. Sow 0.5cm (¼") deep in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, greenhouse or on a cool windowsill. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant seedlings to other trays, 5cm (2") apart, when large enough to handle (Always handle by a leaf, never by the stem). Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, 25cm (10") apart, May-June, into rich, well dug soil. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Water well. Harvest: August to November.
Hint's & Tips
