Seed Sowing


Apium graveolens

How to Sow:

  • Sow seed in a heated propagator on the surface of a good free draining damp seed compost.
  • Cover with a sprinkling of compost. Germination takes up to 15 days.
  • Transplant when large enough to handle into trays or individual modules.
  • Grow on steadily in cooler conditions before planting out after all risk of frost has passed, 30 cm (12”) between plants each way.
  • It is essential plants are kept adequately moist throughout the growing season. If grown in a block, plants are naturally self blanching.
