What are the cons? None


Last season was my first garden adventure. I'd read that celery is difficult to grow, but I thought I'd try because I also read someone's review that said home grown is by far the best tasting. I thought I'd give it a try since I'm not a big celery fan, but I know home grown tomatoes are the only ones worth eating, and I thought maybe celery would be the same. I was right. No comparison. It grew very, very slowly, but had no pest problems and never seemed to suffer when other plants were flagging. I gave away lots, and was later sorry I didn't have more. I washed, chopped and froze what was left at the end of the season, adding it to winter soups for fantastic taste. Leaves and stems are a nice dark green and held color. Maybe I was successful because our summer was unusually mild last year, but I'm going to try it again and hope for even half the success. I grew both Utah Tall and Giant Red. The Giant Red was very pretty, but the stems were hollow and sort of papery.
