After a long wait some warm weather has turned up. Tuesday’s temperature was 25.3°C, the warmest day of the year.

Our celery and celeriac were planted out on the plot today. After all my doubts about how well they were doing at various stages of their development I was pleased with the condition of the plants.
They were sown on 27th February and placed under the grow light to germinate. The seeds had germinated by 6th March but even under the light the young seedlings took on a rather leggy look.

They remained under the light until the 9th April when they were transplanted into modules still a bit on the leggy side.
They were left to grow on in our unheated greenhouse. By the 5th of May they were starting to develop into much stronger looking plants.
So now they are planted out into their final positions. All we need to do is make sure we keep them well watered and hope that they remain pest free or attack from any allotment predators.

  1. I've never tried growing celery or celeriac, in fact, I've never even eaten celeriac before. Another gorgeous day again, it's supposed to get even warmer as the week goes on.

  2. If we get some celery and celeriac to eat it will be a first for us. Weather looking good for the weekend too.
