Where do celery seeds come from? Celery has been cultivated as a vegetable since antiquity, coming from the Mediterranean region. The entire plant is edible, including the seeds and roots. It offers a taste loved by most people, providing useful vitamins and fiber as well as flavor. Growing celery is particularly rewarding, as it is a less common home garden crop. Celery can grow in USDA hardiness zones 2 to 10. This plant is adaptable to cooler climates and has a steady growth.


Start celery seeds indoors 2 to 4 weeks before moving outdoors at or after the last frost date. Sow seeds shallowly, about 1/8 inch deep, in a fine seed starting mix. Maintain soil moisture to help with the germination – between 2 and 3 weeks. When seedlings have several true leaves, harden off and transplant them into the garden, spacing 6 to 8 inches apart in rows 2 feet apart. Celery plants benefit from being planted with mulch, as it aids in retaining soil moisture.


Celery demands diligent care during the growing season. The key to crisp stalks lies in maintaining constant soil moisture. Celery can greatly benefit from regular feedings of a balanced, organic fertilizer for steady growth. Taller varieties can be stalked to keep them upright and protecting them from strong winds. Check for pests and diseases, taking necessary action when needed. As a biennial plant, celery will produce flowers and subsequently seeds in its second year. Once the seeds are dry, you can collect them.
