CELERY SEED

CELERY SEED:

Also Known As: Marsh Parsley and Wild Celery

PREPARATION:

To relax your mind, try a pleasant tasting infusion. Use 1 to 2 teaspoons of fresh crushed seeds per one cup of boiling water. Steep for 10 to 20 minutes. Drink up to 3 cups of tea a day.

For a tincture, take one half to 1 teaspoon up to 3 times daily.

USE: (Grow Your Own)

Use well watered rich organic soil. Celery can grow year round in mild weather conditions. Otherwise, grow indoors starting in January. Start to bed seedlings in the spring right after the frost has passed. Soak seeds before planting. Germination will take up to 10 days.

Transplant the seedlings when they are about 3 inches in height. This process should take about 3 months. Space plants 6 inches apart and water copiously. Harvest when the plants are mature.
