FYI: My fav Celeriac recipe. the turks cook it a lot as a Winter vegetable.
My seedling guy at the Caboolture markets has been selling some seedlings over Winter.
So you would recommend growing in the cooler months in future Dave. I'll see how these go. If they don't perform they will be removed and something more productive put in.
We harvested a good lot from the Deagon market garden today. They weren't huge but they looked the trick.Usually a colder weather/temperate climate crop.
Giving stem Celery a go in a dedicated wicking bin in a cool spot. So far growing OK, early days. Added lots of Gypsum.
I notice these droop quickly if I don't give them daily water, but then they are just seedlings establishing themselves. Just trying out the two to see how I like them. Gotta be better than slow growing regular celery.
Minor, got a couple of small roots from some seeds planted. Slow-growing, needs plenty of water although supposedly less demanding than the stem Celery. Very knobbly root, tastes OK like stronger Celery. Doubt my growing conditions were ideal; was before the beds were converted to wicking beds and keeping up water was always a struggle.
