Celery tends to have a long growing season (90+ days) and performs well under less than ideal growing conditions such as heat or moisture stress. We recommend starting your seeds in the 162-cell seed starting tray 10-12 weeks before you transplant. Seedlings will typically emerge in 2-3 weeks time. Celery likes soil temps averaging 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Tango Celery prefers 5 to 7 hours of full sun each day and loose, rich, well-drained soil with a neutral pH between 6.0 and 8.0. Once your celery is ready to be harvested, harvest your stalks by cutting the base at soil level with a knife. Celery needs 1-1.5" of water per week, it grows best when it has constant moisture.
