Celery is one of my favourite plants - a herb and a vegetable in one.
Although our winter is not cold we still manage to produce a good crop in the garden.
Did you know that to grow longer stems you should put newspaper around the lower stems?
I use celery in everything I can - and if you get a large plant with a good bulb - it makes a wonderful dish using a cheese sauce over it.
It is detoxifier, antiseptic, a diuretic, a sedative and a general cleanser for the body.
Once it has become to old and tough to use as a culinary herb - it makes excellent compost
