- 1. **Select the Right Location:** Choose a sunny to partially shaded spot in your garden for planting Celery Utah Tall. Celery appreciates full sun, but it can also thrive in partial shade, especially in warmer climates.
- 2. **Soil Preparation:** Prepare well-drained, fertile soil with plenty of organic matter. Celery thrives in soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH level.
- 3. **Planting:** Celery is typically grown from transplants. Plant these transplants about 10-12 inches apart in rows, with rows spaced around 30 inches apart.
- 4. **Watering:** Celery requires consistent moisture. Keep the soil consistently moist but avoid waterlogging. Use a soaker hose or drip irrigation to deliver water directly to the base of the plants.
- 5. **Mulching:** Apply a layer of organic mulch around the plants to help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and maintain even soil temperature.
- 6. **Fertilization:** Celery benefits from regular feeding. Apply a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or a nitrogen-rich fertilizer throughout the growing season, following package instructions.
- 7. **Hilling:** As the celery plants grow, consider hilling up soil around the base of the plants to blanch the stalks and make them tender and sweeter.
- 8. **Pest and Disease Control:** Keep an eye out for common celery pests like aphids and celery leaf miners. Implement appropriate pest control measures if needed.
- 9. **Harvesting:** You can start harvesting Celery Utah Tall when the stalks are large enough, typically after about 100-120 days. Harvest the outer stalks first and leave the inner ones to continue growing.
