All About Growing Celery

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Celery contains lots of fiber, vitamins A, C and K, folate, potassium, manganese and flavonoids that are known to decrease inflammation and your risk of heart disease and cancer, and to enhance your immune system and help maintain a healthy weight
  • Planting from seed and soaking them beforehand is the best method for growing organic celery, as well as protecting plants from hot sun, using good, organic soil and a compost tea fertilizer to discourage pests and disease
  • Celery is typically grown in the north in the summer and the south in the winter, but a second planting is also possible, all sown by seed indoors for transplanting outside later, but you can also grow new celery from the base of a stalk

When you think about it, celery is a rather odd vegetable, quite different from others. At first bite, while it does deliver an amazing crunch, it doesn't seem to have all that much flavor. Slice it up for a garden salad, however, and you'll notice how fresh and "foody" it tastes, adding unmistakable flavor to a variety of dishes, from lentil soup to stir-fries.
