The great debate...

...celery debate that is.

I've seen this on a few blogs lately and found it intriguing.  Rather than wonder much about it I decided to jump on the bloggy-band-wagon and give it a try for myself.

Did you know you can root and grow celery from the cut-off end of a store bought bunch?  Here we go:


cut off end.

put in a dish with a little warm water and let set overnight.

plant in your garden or in a pot, as I have done.  just dig the hole about an inch deeped than the 'end,' fill the hole with water, drop in, cover with an inch of soil and et voila.  we'll have to check back in a few days and see how it goes. (don't forget to water!)

Have you tried this?  Did it work?


  1. I haven't tried this but I will just to see what happens.
    Let us know how it goes...

  12. HI.....found you through Java's Over 40 Bloggers. Always fun to meet new people.
    I have never heard of such a thing, but as soon as I show this to my hubby he'll want to try it for sure.
    We just bought a greenhouse and are looking forward to next spring starting to grow alot of our own things.....we need a head start with a green house in this cool country of Alberta Canada

  13. I want to try it and I don't even like celery, but Carol likes to cook with it so if it does work it will save a bit of grocery money. I'll let you know how it goes.
