First time growing celery

Does anyone else grow I thought of planting in my raised veggie bed.

Every time i think about it I read the books and they put me off. You have to blanche the stems apparently by protecting them from the light with cardboard tubes and keep renewing as they grow taller....I hope you do go for it though Kath, I want to know how it turns out!

I will remember then to protect with kitchen roll tubes.

As you see they have just germinated ,do you think I should cover the now.

This is so challenging then and hope to pass them on to plant at community garden.

Sorry Kath, I have no idea. Best to consult a book or an allotmenteer I think!
