Excellent disease resistance. To get fresh crisp stalks it requires plenty of manure & water, & don’t let the soil dry out because celery has shallow roots. Sow in spring and autumn.

Celery-Tall Utah is a self-blanching type of celery, which means that it does not require earthing up or blanching to achieve its characteristic pale green colour.

Sow seeds director in individual pots. As the seed of Tall Utah Celery is very tiny, add several  into each pot. After they have germinated & are large enough to thin, remove all but two or three. As they continue to grow remember to keep thinning.

How to Grow Tall Utah Celery

  1. Celery-Tall Utah requires soil rich in nutrients and organic matter. Start by preparing the soil by removing any weeds, rocks, and debris. Work in plenty of compost and well-rotted manure to improve soil fertility and structure.
  2. Start Tall Utah Celery seeds indoors, 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost date in your area. Sow the seeds in trays or individual pots filled with potting mix. Keep the soil moist and place the containers in a warm bright location until the seedlings emerge.
  3. When the seedlings have grown to about 10cm (4 inches) tall and have several sets of true leaves, they are ready to transplant.  Plant the seedlings about 30cm (12 inches) apart in rows  spaced about 60cm (24 inches) apart.
  4. Watering Tall Utah Celery regularly to maintain moisture to grow well.  Aim to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
  5. Fertilise Tall Utah Celery regularly as it is a heavy feeder and requires regular fertilisation to produce large and healthy stalks.  Apply a balanced fertiliser every two to three weeks throughout the growing season.
  6. Harvest at around 110 days when the celery should be mature. The stalks can be harvested when they are roughly 30cm (12 inches) tall and 5cm (2 inches) in diameter. To harvest, simply cut the stalks at the base of the plant.
