I was lucky enough this week to be given some lovely healthy little celery seedlings. It’s such a lovely community at the allotment, everyone swapping and eager to share their ‘babies’!
Now I have to say that I’m not sure of the variety of celery that we were given but I am told that it’s self blanching, so basically it’s not going to need ‘earthing up’.
I have found that we are getting short on space at the plot, which I can hardly believe after the way I was so initially daunted by the size of the area, so I’ve created a block of celery, rather than a row and although I suspect the seedings may be a little close together but I will see how they get on.
I also thought this would be a great little spot for them as they like moisture rich soil and this bed has recently been mulched with horse manure (which I rotovated in the week before).
I will see how it comes on, we’re happy to partake in a little trial and error!
