They are more likely to go to seed. I dont think the rootball will grow much more but if you are'nt desperate for space you could leave tehm and see what happens.

Last summer was on the whole dry and celeriac need a LOT of water, so this may be why they did'nt swell?

Did you remember to turn your clocks back?

I hardly water mine at all over the winter, they are kept in a cold polytunnel then put out into a cold frame.

Yellowing of the leaves can be caused by too much or perversely too little fertiliser, it might be the compost is spent and you need to get them in the ground?

Happy Mothers Day.

If they are still in pots make sure you haven't overwatered them as this can cause yellowing of the leaves.

When to direct sow the following outside

They're hardy annuals but as with any seed they will germinate better when the soil has warmed up, they are all quick growers so unless you're thinking of covering them with fleece or cloches I would wait a couple of weeks.

As the day length increases the soil will warm up so should be good around Easter.

You might be able to force some freesia bulbs indoors, they were one of my mums favourite flowers.
