Dirt Goddess Super Seeds are fortified with Mycorrhizae, Beneficial Bacteria & Trichoderma for Superior Growth & Vigor. Organically!
Mycorrhizae forms a symbiotic relationship with the roots of 95% of the worlds plants and it’s believed that plants were able to evolve onto land due to this symbiosis.
Colonization by mycorrhizae can provide multiple functions: increased nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, resistance to pathogens, increased vigor and yield.
It has been shown that the presence of Mycorrhizae can increase a plant’s absorption of certain nutrients which it cannot uptake on its own.
In most gardens and agricultural settings the mycorrhizae is destroyed by tilling, the overuse of chemical fertilizers, and fungicides. The mycorrhizae must be re-added to the soil in order to benefit the plant.
Mycorrhizae is naturally 100% organic.

Story of this Seed:
Thanks and Happy Growing!
CULTURE: The most successful crops are grown for fall harvest rather than mid-summer harvest. Weather fluctuations and cold nights cause celery to bolt. Sow in sterile seedling mix indoors February through April. Keep soil moist. When raising transplants soil temperature is vital to success. Transplant in rows 18-24 inches apart when the weather is warm enough for peppers and melons. Celery is one of the heaviest feeding plants grown in the garden. Apply 1 1/2-2 cups of fertilizer into the soil per 5 row feet to provide adequate nutrition. Keep well watered. Bolting is the result of young plants being exposed to nighttime air temperatures below 55°F for a week or more. Direct sowing is not recommended.
DISEASE: Good preventive measures include crop rotation, adequate water supply, and aphid control.
INSECTS/PESTS: The larva of the carrot fly is an occasional celery pest. Mature larva are 3/8 inch long, straw-colored, and wiry. Worms burrow into the heart and kill or stunt the plant. Crop row covers such as Reemay, Grow Guard 20, or Summer Insect Barrier are very effective deterrents.
HARVEST: Many varieties of celery will stand in the garden until spring, allowing light pickings for soups and salad. Chopping off the entire head is not advisable. Instead, pick individual stalks as needed. In spring, the unopened flowers and the tender stalks below them are particularly good tasting.
SEED SPECS: Minimum germination standard: 65%. Usual seed life: 3 years.

Answer this question
You mentioned the root, celeriac, does this variety of celery produce a good root? I have seen seeds sold just for root consumption, I'd like a plant that I can eat both stalks and root.
