Celeriac needs a six-month growing season for the swollen 'bulb' at the base of the stem to develop. It is then harvested in late autumn or early winter, and can cooked or grated raw into salads. The leaves can also be used for seasoning and garnishing. Sow seeds indoors in modules in early spring, and then harden off the plants before planting out when they are about 7cm (3in) tall. Plant in rows 30-38cm (12-15in) apart with the crowns at soil level, not buried. 'Brilliant' is a smooth-rooted variety with lovely white flesh that doesn't discolour.
