Celery is known for its refreshing edible stalks. Being a colder weather crop, Celery does not grow well in heat, and prefers an area with long falls, and mild winters and summers. If it's a hot summer, make sure to shade seedlings, or plant it in a spot that gets some afternoon shade. Given that it takes Celery a long time to mature, most gardener usually like starting it inside or buying transplants. Though celery can withstand light frost, it is recommended to plant after risk of frost has passed. Celery was originated from a type of marsh crop, so it prefers the soil to be consistently moist, but not soggy.
