How to grow video guide

Transplant into garden bed, 20cm apart, and each row 40cm apart from each other.

Water in well and mulch well.

Fill starter trays with seedraising mix, sprinkle seeds over mix, cover gently and water in.

Keep soil moist during germination.

Once seedlings reach 10cm tall, fill chosen pots with quality potting mix and water in well.

From Plant

Make sure you give celeriac enough room to grow, either in pots or in the garden since the tuberous roots can reach a diamter of 5-8cm and the same length

Ready to harvest

When the bulbs are about the size of a tennis ball, carefully remove the bulbous root from the soil and enjoy.

Collect seed

Harvesting celeriac seeds with the most flavors relies upon careful observance to ensure the seed is ripe.

When the flower head is dry and the individual seeds are hard and dark colored, cut the bloom carefully and shake the seed into a bag.

Alternatively, bend the flower stalk into a bag and shake.

Keep in cool, dry place for up to 5 years.
