Welcome Family: Carrot (Apiaceae) Biennial normally grown as an annual for the tender stalks. 90 to 100 days to full-sized edibility, with seeds in the summer of the second year. This open-pollinated variety "Utah" yields vigorous, stocky plants with thick, solid, tender yet crisp stalks. Celery seed is one of the most efficient of all diuretics. Plant prefers sun, rich soil and frequent watering. Mound soil up around plant as it grows to keep the stalks light-green and crisp. Sow in spring.
Sow the seed very shallowly (about 1/10 of an inch deep) in the garden and cover with light soil. It's important to keep the soil moist during the 3 week germination period. Note: For faster germination, try soaking the celery seed in room-tempeture water for 1-2 days. Plant at once. Once seedlings reach 6" tall, thin them to 10 inches apart with 18 inches between rows. (Seedlings can be used for flavoring soups.)
