Chinese Celery

 Today we planted Chinese Celery for the first time, we hope that it grows well, we bought it as a seedling produced by the Potted Wok, the info below is from their website.

  • Continual harvest, "cut and come again".
  • Pick leaves and stems as soon as the plants are big enough to withstand harvesting.
  • Pick one stem at a time or harvest the whole plant by cutting to a few centimetres above the ground and letting the plant regrow.
  • Water well in dry weather.
  • Liquid fertilise regularly.\Leaves or finely chopped stems can be used in salads, soups and stews and stir-fried rice and noodle dishes.
  • Chinese celery has a strong flavour, so don't use too much.
  • The stems may be stir-fried on their own with a small amount of soy sauce and sesame seeds. Or add bean sprouts and other vegetables to create an easy stir-fry.
  • The seeds can be used as a spice.
