Celery is one of the 12 dirty dozens.
I want to ask my dad who is a garden fanatic to grow celery in his garden without all the chemical.

  1. Here are some tips on growing celery:

    I gave up on it some time ago since it seemed more trouble than it was worth for the little bit we used each year. I liked the related variety par-cel (as it sounds, a combination of parsley and celery) a little better.

    1. I think celery growing requires a knack and I don't have it. Instead I grow cutting celery (http://www.barbarapleasant.com/cuttin...) and celeriac (http://www.vegetablegardener.com/item...). I also found celeriac to be much easier to store for a much longer period of time than celery.
