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. Although 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.
