Harvest flowers: Celery is biennial and will produce seeds every other year. Leave some celery in the ground after harvest. We recommend cutting stems high at harvest, with a substantial stump left in the ground to produce seed in spring. In harsh winter environments, celery can be protected by a dome through the winter. They will send up flower stalks, reaching up to 3 feet high with light green flowers. Once the petals have withered and the stalks begin to dry out, pick them off the plant. Spread stalks on new
Collect seeds: Once stalks are dry, hold each flower stalk over a bowl and break open each seed head (located directly beneath where petals were) with your fingers. The seeds will fall into the bowl.
Label and Store: Store in jar or envelope. Celery seeds can last up to five years.
Celery does best in temperatures between 70-75 degrees F. Plant in rich soil and provide plenty of water. Avoid planting in direct sun, though celery should have some sun exposure. Many recommend starting celery indoors about 10-12 weeks before last spring frost.
Celery will cross with other celeriac varieties. To ensure seed integrity, allow 1 mile of separation between varieties.
