Further to my earlier post, I have come across a recommendation from Monty Don , that most of the outter  leaves should be pulled off in the autumn so as to direct more energy into growing the root ball. To be honest I cant see commercial growers doing this , so am a bit sceptical !!

Dear All, my very first post so I hope this is ok.

I have grown 3 rows of celeriac this year and have ended up with some lovely heathy and bushy plants. The problem is that the root balls are so small there is hardly anything to harvest.

I would welcome any thoughts on what might have gone wrong, and how I can improve next year.

ps we did have a long dry spell this year which will probably not have helped.

Thanks ......Russel.
