Description For Celery Seeds


Celery can be planted from its seeds which are used as spices. Best is to start cultivating indoors for a successful result and then transplanting to the garden during the end of cold climate. Late summer is the best time for direct sowing.

How to grow Celery from Seeds

Introduction and Uses: Celery is an excellent source of antioxidants and beneficial enzymes, along with Vitamin B6, K and C, potassium, and folate. Celery seeds help to lower inflammation and fight bacterial infections. In certain parts of the world, celery is grown mainly for its beneficial seeds, which are a small type of fruit. These seeds are commonly used as a spice and contain an oily compound called apiol that is used to add flavour to authentic dishes and is also used in medicines.

Botanical Name: Apium graveolens.

Sowing Season: Monsoon & best grown in winter

Sowing method: Transplantation
Because the seeds are small in size, Celery plant is grown by transplantation method. Seeds are first sown indoors in seedling trays or outdoors on seed beds & later the seedlings are transplanted into containers or in raised beds.

Growing container: Seedling trays/ seed cups/ small polybags/ seed bed.

Growing medium: Coco peat (indoors), Fine soil (outdoors)

Steps for seed sowing (Seed starting) in a container:

  • Take a seedling tray with medium sized cells & drainage holes at the bottom.
  • Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium.
  • Hold the Celery seeds on your left palm & sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Celery seeds are small in size, they should not be sown very deep.

  • Sowing Technique:
  • Just put the seeds on the surface of the medium & push each seed a little inside the medium by using a pencil tip, so that seeds are not visible on the surface and then cover it with more coco-peat or make small, shallow depressions on the medium with the pencil bottom. Put the seeds on that depression & sprinkle more coco-peat on the top to cover the seed.
  • Keep the seedling tray indoors till the seeds germinate.

  • Covering: Place the seed tray in a box or cover it with paper for first 4-5 days to encourage faster seed germination.

    Watering:
  • Water the seed cells with a spoon in the first week. Provide two tablespoons of water every day or keep the seed tray in another tray full of water for half an hour, so that that water will get absorbed by the seed cells from the bottom, via drainage holes.
  • If seed beds are made outdoors, protect them from heavy rain or direct sunlight. Use well sieved fine soil as a sowing medium & make a nice raised bed from it. Cover the bed by making a temporary roof of a plastic sheet. Water it in the form of a light shower by watering can.

  • Growth stages of Celery:

    Sprouting stage:Seeds will germinate within first 6-8 days or so & tiny sprouts will be visible. Once seeds germinate, put the tray on an open partially sunny spot near the window. Don’t cover the tray anymore.

    Cotyledons: The first two leaves will emerge in the second week of germination. These are false leaves called as cotyledons.

    First leaves: First leaves will emerge above cotyledons at the end of the second week.

    Seedling stage: Second week onwards, seedlings will start growing into a small plant. At this stage exposé the seedlings to more & more sunlight for leaf growth.

    Thinning: After the second week, keep only single seedling per cell/cup. Cut off the weak, small & lagging seedlings with a pair of scissors.

    Transplantation: 30 to 35 days after the seed sowing, your seedlings will be ready to transplant in container pots or on raised beds.

    Container:
  • Choose a container with a minimum depth of 8 inches & bigger spread area (according to available space & your requirement) like big Trays or crates.
  • Ideal planting mixture for Celery: 2 part garden soil & 1 part organic manure, or 1 part garden soil, 1 part coco-peat & 1 part Vermicompost.
  • Transplant the seedling along with root ball of a medium, without disturbing its roots.

  • Spacing:Plant the seedlings minimum 6 inches apart from each other in raised beds or a container.

    How to take care for Celery Plant:

    Sunlight: Celery grows well under full sunlight or partial sunlight in winter. So place your containers accordingly.

    Watering technique: Water your potted Celery plants every alternate day in winter. Water at the soil near the plant. Use a watering can, and make sure that the plants get water in the form of a shower & not by a single flow. You can also make provision for watering by watering by drip irrigation system for your raised beds. Avoid overwatering.

    Manuring: Add good quality organic manure in the soil with 2:1 ratio before transplanting the seedling. Organic fertiliser can be well rotten cow dung manure, farmyard manure, Compost or Vermicompost.

    Top Dressing: Apply balanced liquid fertilizers or handful of vermicompost to each plant, every 15 days after transplantation.

    Plant care: Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal infection/ any other infections. Spray appropriate medicines as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted.

    Microgreens: If you plan to grow micro greens Celery grow it indoors in flat containers. Sow-scatter the seeds in a crowded manner. You can harvest it in 10-15 days by uprooting baby plants.

    Harvesting: (130-140 days from seed sowing). 90 to 110 days after transplantation, Celery will be ready to harvest. You can harvest it along with the stem, leaf stalks & leaves.
