Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Tall Utah 52-70R, a biennial herb, has a marked preference for cooler climates, setting the stage for a thriving growth cycle. Start the cultivation journey by sowing the seeds indoors. Plant them about 1/8 inch deep, preferably 10-12 weeks ahead of the final frost date. As the seedlings brave out two true leaves, they're ready for the outdoors. When transplanting, maintain a gap of 8-10 inches between each plant and ensure rows are 24 inches apart. While this celery basks in full sunlight, it also demands consistent moisture, ensuring the stalks are not only flavorful but also juicy.
