Regrowing Celery?

Post  anyaknotts on 3/13/2014, 8:39 pm

We have some celery from 2013 in our garden right now that is still going off. Can it keep growing all through summer 2014? or is it an annual?

Welcome to the forum. Celery is a biannual. It usually grows leafy vegetation the first year, and produces flowers to create seeds the second year.

I don't know if the flavor will change the second year.

It tends to get a little bit more bitter and starts to go stringy the closer it is to producing seeds.
keep it well watered so the leaves don't go real dark green seem to help


If you lift the plant cut off the all but the bottom 1& 1/2 inches and trim the roots you can then replant the " stumpling "  and it will regrow into a useable celery plant.

To get roots started on the stumpling  set it in a saucer of water for a week or so , keep the water topped up and as soon as th new plant breaks out with greenery to about 3/4 of an inch tall ( 20 mm ) ,  ( well a yellowish green leaf set ) go and plant the stumpling in the bed so that the soil is level with the old cut off top .
The new greenery should be proud of the soil ,. water it in well and enjoy it when it grows .
I have eight stumplings that have over wintered and hope to not only get some seed off two of them ,  I want to try and take a couple of second stumpling cuttings to see how they perform and how many years I can keep doing it.
