Seed Exchange - Introduced in 1894 by the Peter Henderson & Company seed house of New York, this beautiful purple celery quickly gained popularity, and by 1903 it was offered by over 100 seed houses across North America. Its compact plants offer an abundance of stalks and leaves, which have a dark-purple flush on inner stalks and leaf tips. The thin, solid stalks are sweet with an intense, almost fennel-like, flavor. Biennial, 80-90 days

Celery needs light to germinate so sow seeds very shallowly. In cool climates, sow indoors, then moisten and cover with clear plastic. When celery leaves begin to emerge, remove the plastic cover and place the container in a sunny spot, always keeping the soil moist. When there are two true leaves, transplant outside when the soil has warmed and night temperatures have been above 40°. Sow seeds outdoors before 3-4 weeks of last frost or soil can be worked.
Sow indoors 10-12 weeks before the last frost
Germinates in 10-20 days
Plant Rows 8-10" apart
