Grow Your Own Celery

Next time you buy celery, just cut 1.5″ off the bottom, put in water for 24 hours or more, and then plant it in the garden with the top of the celery level with the soil.  Watch it grow!  I saw this idea on Pinterest from Farm Bell Recipes blog and just had to try it myself.

    Does it ever grow back to edible stalks? Or does it just go to flower?

  2. Living Crafts says:

    Hi Kathryn, Oh YES! it does grow back to a full celery plant and then you can cut the ends again and never buy celery again. the stalks themselves are now about 3″-4″ after 2.5 weeks.
    best, pardis

    What a fabulous idea! Never new this. I knew you could make pineapples out of pineapple tops ( takes about 2 years) but never knew that you could do this with celery. I am going to go buy some Organic celery and try it out! Thanks for sharing.

  5. I have mine soaking right now. Looking forward to watching it grow back.

    Can this be done in containers IN the home instead of planting outside? I live in an apartment.
