This little guy which you’ve seen in a pervious post didn’t make it. He was my first real causality of gardening. He was liven his life strong all the way up until I put him in the pot. What went wrong you ask? Well, I’m still not sure. He quickly started to yellow and his stalks were easily pulled out. Unfortunately the same thing happened with the second celery plant I started.
I’ll definitely review this and try again, making some adjustments along the way.
One of the few tutorials I saw online featured a “how to regrow celery” from the base of a cut stalk post. I followed the one from 17 Apart and you can find the original tutorial / blog post here.
I thought I’d give ii a try as it looked simple and fun to do, and it was / is! All you need is the base of a celery stalk, a dish to put in in, water and light. I happened to use an empty yogurt container. The photos below show the celery in a few stages. The first image is a few hours ( maybe less ) after I put the base in water. It may not seem like it, but it had already started growing! The second photo is 3 days later. The third photo is 10 days after that.
I’ve since repotted the celery, and started a second one with slightly different results! I’ll do a follow up post on the progress of the celery plants.
BTW, this method also works with Scallions and Bok Choy which the people of 17 Apart have also blogged about. I’ve been experimenting with that as well and will post an update about it in the future.
