Hi, I have grown this celery herb, I purchased a plant from our local garden centre many years ago and I harvest the seeds.

My current plant is over 5 ft tall and is in flower and setting seed. I seem to be able to grow Italian parsley almost as tall and its almost ready for seed harvest.

I donít do anything special with the plants, at times they get neglected and they still thrive and I grow most of my herbs all year round, some of my friends donít have the same luck as I do and they are keen gardeners.

Wonderful cutting type celery grown for its highly flavored leaves (does not produce true thick stalks). Use it in substitution of Parsley for stronger flavors. (77 days)
