WOW! Thanks, Has. I love you I wasn't going to grow celery again this year, but now maybe I'll give it another shot.

What about that "Ever-Green" stuff for aphids. Have you ever tried it? Must be safe if she's organic and puts it right on the edible part of a plant?

I have never heard of this Ever-Green either...more to come?  I am not motivated to grow celery, mostly because of my short growing season.

have not tried it. I usually use a little olive oil with few drops of dr. Bonners to get it to emulsify or something similar. Let me know if you try it.

Evergreen is Pyrethrum Concentrate, which is OMRI certified for organic gardening use. But, it is a non-selective pesticide and will kill beneficial insects as well as the targeted ones.

YIKES! Not a chance. I hate aphids, but not as much as I love my ladybugs and butterflies. Shocked

I was going to try the other method from this thread since I juice a lot of celery.

I am intrigued by this, has anyone grown it, especially with a summer growing season (pretty short).

Scorpio Rising, I grow celery and swear by the flavor. I grow Utah Tall or Tall Utah depending on which company I get seeds. I grow it all gardening season long and it produces quite well. I start it February and transplant some in May and some of it I tucked in between peppers and tomatoes that I transplanted after harvesting the garlic at the beginning of July and still get good production up until the first frost. I don't know if you know the real taste of celery until you grow your own. Similar to lettuce best eaten in the first 24 hours.

Thanks for the info, Dan!  I think I’m going to give it a try this year.  I did see that it liked some shade, so that’s good.  I have some space on the north side of trellised beans/cukes.  Is it a heavy feeder?

Scorpio Rising, most vegetables if not all prefer a fertile, moist well draining soil. It is only when they start producing that their feeding habits change. Celery are slow growers and if I side dress at all it is when I start harvesting. By then plants are good size. I side dress with Espoma Gardentone and only a level table spoon around the plant. Plus I mulch with leaves and have no way of knowing the amount of nutrients they supply during a long growing season. So that is the long answer to your query; is celery a heavy feeder. The short answer is I don't think so but others have it down as a heavy feeder but you are starting off with very fertile soil. Watering and consistent moisture is more important for growth and flavor. Watch the stalks, green is good.
