Talkback: How to grow celeriac

Posted: 27/02/2014 at 19:27

Dove, I've been growing celery for the last couple of years and found the flavour of home grown almost eye-wateringly strong, but v. useful in cooking. I just don't have the space for both veg so growing celeriac gives me, I hope, the best of both worlds.

I'm growing celeriac for the first time this year as I love making celeriac remoulade. Seeing the photos in the 'how to do it' article makes me wonder; can one eat the leaves also as if it were celery?

Dove, Peter Grimes is one of my most favourite operas, how lovely to see it on the beach it must have made it very special But my absolute favourite has to be Fidelio; when the prisoners come out singing, it is so heartbreaking and could be political prisoners nowadays in so many countries.

I just feed sunflower hearts bought in a large sack from the local feed store and a big sack of niger seed bought on line. Since all the Starlings seemed to have vanished from the Fens over the last 3 years, the fat balls that i make with linseed or buy are never eaten.

Jameslu, those trees are very graceful. I love growing vegetables, soft fruit like gooseberries and black currents, and lots of flowers, especially roses.

How cold does it get in the winter where you are? and how hot in the summer?

Where I am in the East of England, the temperature does not usually go very far below freezing, though we can have some surprising winters.

Everos, I agree; I try to keep as many as I have space for during the winter; cheaper and the plants have a flying start.
