Celeriac: Better late than never

Celeriac seedsI’ve started a bit late this year. Celeriac usually gets sown end of January, because it needs a long, long growing season to achieve any size (and even then it sometimes fails to deliver much of a bulb).

The good news about a wet summer is that you get monster celeriac. In SE Britain, it was horribly dry last year so I got rubbish. I don’t want a pissing summer, God knows, but there is an upside.

    never tried it although with the wet summers we have usually maybe I should! I’ll see how you get on, one for next year maybe.

    I’ve never eaten celeriac, never mind grown it. Might be worth considering for my allotment though, it’s like a bog at the moment.

    Plant a few tomatoes! Then, it is going to be wet for sure!

    Bloody hell, I wasn’t going to start mine until March! Damn it, that’s another job I need to do.

    This isn’t something I’ve grown or eaten but I have to admit to being curious…maybe I should buy some from the store to see if I like it!!

    Oh and Soilman…if we get a wet summer I will come and find you!!!!!

    Oh buggeration! I haven’t got my celeriac started yet. We had a good harvest this year, but I suppose I might have started to feel a bit celeriaced out because somehow they slipped my mind – now I shall have to find my seed and some space in the greehouse …
