Hello, everybody and welcome to my channel Today. I will show you how to celery from that root end that We usually cut off and throw in the garbage can, If there’s a vegetable that I really enjoy and really like is celery. I absolutely love the crisp and fresh taste and it has become one of my favorite ingredients for soups, snacks, salads and juice. If you don’t know about the health benefits of this vegetable, I will tell you a little bit more about it. Celery is a great source of antioxidants such as vitamin C betacarotene and flavonoids. It helps reducing inflammation. Also, 95 % of the celery is water. That combined with a high amount of dietary fiber, makes it a great support for digestive process. Also, it’s rich in vitamins like vitamin A K, C folates and minerals such as manganese, calcium and potassium. I always wanted to have my own organic garden, and I found out that growing celery was a good start because of the simplicity of the process. So, let’s do it! The first step is: Go to the grocery store and get a celery like this one.
Make sure it has a root, because this is the part that we’re going to use, Get the organic one, because the stalks of the celery are very porous and they retain almost all the pesticides that they are sprayed with. Celery grown conventionally was found to have up to 13 pesticides on one sample and over to 95 % of all the samples tested positive for pesticides. The second step is to cut off the end Slice about 5 centimeters of the root end Place the root in a shallow bowl and fill with enough water to submerge a few centimeters
Use warm water – This is an important step, since the warm water will help germination take place, Be sure that the cut side is facing up in the bowl Place, the bowl where it can get good natural light and change the water. Frequently like every couple of days. I placed my near to this window right here. I also have some other celeries that start growing a few weeks ago, like this one. After a few days, you should start seeing little leaf growing in the center of the top
You need to know that outer stalks are likely to deteriorate and become brown. This is normal, but if you leave it for to much longer in the water it will rot. I had this in water like for around two weeks. It’S ready this one even had a little root here. It is super delicated. If you don’t have a garden like me, you can plant celery in potting. Soil Make a hole, wide and big enough to hold the plant from the root Set in the celery and gently fill the hole and tap the soi.l. I’M gon na do the same with this one So make a hole. Put the celery fill the hole and tap the surrounding soil.
Now you can put a little bit of water to keep the soil. Moist Celery needs constant humidity, It’s recommended to water, it at least twice per week. It doesn’t like excessive sun. It likes cool wheater, so in the hottest part of the day, give it some shade. This is my celery guys Thanks a lot for watching this video. I hope it’s gon na help you to grow some beautiful celery.
