How to Grow Utah 52-70 Celery from Seed
Celery is a cool weather favorite best started in early spring or late summer. Begin indoors 10-12 weeks prior to final frost or 8-10 to first autumn frost. Press without covering 2-3 seeds per cell in Organic, moist, well-drained potting mix with a pH of 6-7. Seeds germinate in 14-21 days, transplant best starts 9-12" apart in the garden as true leaves establish. Requires steady watering and a cooling top layer of mulch to keep from bolting. Benefits from additional compost throughout the season with properly drained and ventilated soil.
The Utah 52-70 can be sown indoors and transplanted after ten to twelve weeks, or can be sown directly outdoors ten to twelve weeks before the last average frost of the season. These seeds do best in moist soil with a pH level between six and seven. Sow the celery seeds a quarter inch deep in the soil, with twelve inches between plants and eighteen to twenty four inches between rows.
Utah 52-70 Celery in the Vegetable Garden
Celery is one of the most popular vegetable crops in the entire world yet still seldom grown by many home gardeners. Much like lettuce, broccoli, and kale, garden celery can be harvested repeatedly throughout the season as a "“cut and come again" variety able to be pushed up until the frost. Once established, celery is one of the most productive and low-maintenance grows of the season, certain to find its way back into the garden bed year after year.
While growing, the Utah 52-70 crops will need plenty of constant watering. When the stalks have reached at least six inches tall, they can be harvested by cutting at the base. The stalks can be refrigerated and used within a couple of weeks.
Harvesting Utah 52-70 Celery
Celery is known to have a longer harvest date but, once established, can offer repeat harvests like leafy greens. Celery can be traditionally harvested whole or in "“cut and come again" fashion. Harvest outer stalks when at least 6-8" tall by cutting from the base, allowing inner stalks to continue producing. Be careful of shallow roots cutting above ground. Darker green stalks will yield more nutrition but will also have a more coarse texture.
