Re-Growing celery all winter from a stalk you purchased from the store?

Yes, you can grow celery indoors. I do it. It’s easy and your indoor celery garden will save you money. All you need is a sunny window and a small pot of garden quality soil. Do you grow celery outdoors? If you have the room, wonderful. But remember, having fresh celery year round that is home grown is a very hard endeavor unless you have a warm house, or a greenhouse that can survive harsh winters. Most of us don’t. There are several reasons why I like to re-grow my celery. I enjoy the act of growing, the feeling of accomplishment that comes with doing something from beginning to end. Watching it grow from seed and becoming a flower or a fully mature vegetable is a feeling of pride in yourself that you did this with your own hands. My feelings about re-growing that stalk of celery is this, I saved it from impending rot and death,  a plant that  had so much more to give.

I also consider the fact that if I had a large family, how much money I would save on having to buy bunches of celery on a weekly basis. It could save minimal, but were on baby steps here. We are building a foundation on saving money and feeding our family good sustainable, healthy food. This is only one step in saving money and like I said in the beginning, you will evolve by doing the steps you enjoy. I am sure you will come back and try more projects, once you are comfortable in the ones you started. Pretty soon, these techniques and tricks will come naturally and you will enjoy them. eventually, when the plant stops producing as much celery, then you can discard or put in your compost pile and start another one. Buying just a few bunches a year, as opposed to many is always a plus.

Ready? Let’s get Started on This One: Your Growing Celery Garden

  • Buy a bunch of celery from your grocer or local farmer. Cut the end off. What you have left is the bottom with the old root. It looks brown now, but it will regrow. This is the most important step in learning how to grow celery cuttings

  • Stick the bottom in a glass or jar for a week. Just cover the bottom with water. Check daily, Add water when needed.celery pic 3

 

 

 

  • Plant in a pot or an old can, (that”s what I use.) I always use my  red tomato cans, they match my kitchen, lol,. and it is a conversational piece. Leave most of the top with the sections showing as that is where the celery will start growing from.
  • The leaves will be yellow when they start coming up, but will turn green when they get bigger.
  • If you use a lot of celery , you can plant several cans or pots.

  • When the celery is tall enough to pick, carefully cut or tear it off and store in an airtight bag in fridge until you need it. Don’t worry, more is growing.
  • What I like most about this endeavor is when I buy celery, I can’t use the whole bunch before it gets soft. Using this method, there is no waste at all, you only pick what you need. Congratulations, you now have a growing celery garden.

I know you will enjoy this project as much as I do. I only buy one stalk of celery a year, and I eat it all winter.

If you want to teach small children how to grow their own food, this would be an excellent project. It’s fairly quick and you will see results very soon, This kind of knowledge will last a lifetime. The only thing you must do is cut the bottom off for them and let them do the rest!

This is an easy project. If you decide, and I hope you do, that this would be interesting to try, please do, I know you will be as excited as I was when I seen that first stalk pop through the end that I planted.

Please leave me a comment or question. I am always  here to help you sustain your health.

Best of Luck and Remember…..You CAN do this.

  1. Awsome, I actually have a use for the base of a stalk of celery, after I pickle the rest. Great stuff, glad to see it actually works. Can you do this with green onions?

    1. I know it’s so awesome. I have several veggies that I regrow. My celery regrow lasted me almost a year and when it starts growing slow or not as tall I buy another stalk or get one from a friend to start again. Not only is it fun, but it saved me a good chunk of money along with my lettuce and green onions and garlic that I am regrowing. I wish I knew about this years ago. I can’t believe how easy it is. I use large tomato cans to regrow my veggies. It is a conversation piece in my dining room and everyone who has ever been to my house are converted regrowers. Don’t forget to get your Stinging Nettle for your tea. June is the month to grab these while they are still tender. I found some growing behind my work and now is the perfect time to pick. wear heavy gloves and long sleeves. Thanks again for stopping by. It is always great to see you….Kitty

  2. Hi Kitty! This is really great information, and I’m looking forward to more posts. I’m always looking for tips on how to grow food easier for the non-green thumb gardener. Thank you (and your son) for reinforcing why it’s better to limit fast food consumption.

    1. Macy, Thank You so much for your comment. I love doing this. I hope to enlighten many people toward the natural food sources. Most of all I hope to make everyone aware that there are alternatives to chemicals and preservatives. Glad you like my site. Please come back and visit and let me know what you like, or would like to know about. Thanks again

    1. Thank You Evelyn. I have a lot more great information coming on saving money and re growing vegetables and lots of other stuff. I hope you can come back and visit when I have lots more information on here.

  4. WOW! I did not know that you could grow from store bought celery. I think this is an incredible good idea! Not only is it being Frugal with your money, but the food is also organic, which is better for you anyway. I am assuming that anyone would be able to do this. Thank you for the wonderful idea!

  5. What a nice project. I have never had a celery garden but I really think it is a very useful idea to have one. Yes, picking just what we need is wonderful…I sometimes end up wasting celery after buying it in the supermarket. Thanks for sharing!
