    I've grown trench celery, (slugs got it) self blanching (ran to seed) and Celariac (size of golf balls).

    Last year I grew Kintsai leaf celery and I finally managed to get that celery tatse I enjoy. Two or three leaves in a broth gave the required taste.

    This year I've grown leaf celery but its still in modules waiting to be planted out.

    I must get it planted this week.

    I may grow a couple in pots in the summerhouse to extend the cutting season.

    I guess I could use one of my raised beds, but it would take up the whole bed, that's a big investment if it goes wrong, though I could put winter cabbage in later I suppose.

    Trench celery is a bit of an effort but the celery is excellent in a good year.....you'd never go self blanching once tasted!

    Celtuce was another that went to the kids pets, that was the least celery like, so called celery tasting plant I've ever eaten.

    Did post this on another thread so for fear of repeating myself here we go!

    Mine grew well! Celery growing?-222.jpg

    Did do two varieties, Red Giant which I did find a little stringy, but nice!

    Had another go this year again.
    It looks like celery, the stalks are thin and whispy but the taste is very intense. They don't look like shop bought but moderate success is probably down to the large amounts of rain this year late into summer.

    I had my first go at Celery this year only just started to get to the 8in level this last week, pulled a few stalks for Risotto very intense flavour almost slightly salty very thin stalks so far, it is a self blanching type.
