Celeriac is a large root producing a celery flavoured white flesh. The chances are your nursery will not stock young plants for transplanting, so you will have to start from seed. It requires a long growing season (4 months) and can take two to three weeks to germinate.

How To Grow
For best results sow indoors 10 weeks before planting out in May or June. Sprinkle seeds over a fine compost, do not cover seed as they need sunlight to germinate (2-3 weeks). When the plants are large enough to handle transplant into small pots, 1 plant per pot. Continue to keep the seedlings in a warm sunny place. When the plants are about 10cm tall they should be hardened off in a cold frame before planting out 35cm apart and 35cm between rows. As the plants grow, remove any leaves that fall over and start to die.
