More details about Victoria Pelleted

Victoria celery is a bolt-resistant, upright plant with crisp, juicy, tasty stalks that are an appealing apple-green colour with white at the base. This hybrid grows where other varieties sometimes fail. Victoria matures extra early and is able to keep its colour and flavour even after cooking. Victoria Pelleted celery seeds are easier to plant than raw seeds, as each seed has a white clay coating that makes it easier to handle and easier to see in the soil. Provide ample moisture and highly fertile soil for your celery plants. The fresh leaves of celery are a glorious addition to soups and salads, imparting a strong, savoury flavour. Like most vegetables, home grown celery tends to have much more flavour than store-bought.

From transplant date.

Growing

Growing
Ideal pH: 6.0-6.5. Celery is a heavy feeder and needs rich, moist soil. Add compost to soil and apply ¼-½ cup of complete organic fertilizer per 1.5m (5′) of row. Transplant when seedlings are 10-12cm (4-5″) tall. Avoid transplanting until night time temperatures are reliably at 10°C (50°F) or warmer. Space transplants 30cm (12″) apart in rows at least 45cm (18″) apart. Water frequently. Premature bolting may result from young plants being exposed to temperatures below 13°C (55°F) for several days.

Harvest

Harvest
For best flavour and longer storage, water plants the day before harvest. Stalks on the outside of the plant can be harvested at any time. The entire plant may be harvested once the desired size is reached, but the home gardener should leave the plant in the garden and take only what is needed, leaving the root intact. If winter is not too cold, celery will stand in the garden until spring, allowing for light pickings for soups and salads.
