Sow celery seeds from April to June outdoors, or sow monthly from December to June under glass for a long cutting period on the windowsill. Sow on the surface of a free draining, moist seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place in a propagator or seal the container inside a polythene bag at a constant temperature of 15-18C (59-64F) until after germination which takes up to 21 days. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, carefully transplant them into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in warm, bright conditions. When all risk of frost is passed gradually acclimatise celery plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting outdoors.
Alternatively, direct sow celery seeds outdoors from March to July into well prepared, rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Sow seeds thinly into drills at a depth of 1cm (1/2") deep and 15cm (6") apart. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them to 30cm (12") apart. Make regular sowings for a successional harvest.
