Celery - Victoria
Victoria F1 produces mid green, tall celeries, with fleshy petioles. One of the best flavoured celery varieties available which is self-blanching, quick growing and has a good standing ability. It has an early to mid-season production and will grow where it is traditionally difficult.
Sow the seed from February to April thinly in pots or trays under glass at 18°C. Sow the seeds on the top of moist seed sowing compost and lightly cover to their own depth. As soon as seedlings are large enough to handle, prick off into trays 5cm apart. When seedlings are 6-7cm tall, gradually harden off, before planting out 20cm apart once all risk of frost has passed. Water well throughout the growing season. Ready to harvest from August to November.
