It's my first try at celery.

You cannot let it dry out. Ever. Won't handle below 32 without good covering, and hates heat, which with it's lengthy growing time you may find yourself battling if you start late. I seeded it in January in the basement and it's barely an inch tall. So it's a high maintenance plant. Season timing, luck, or climate, and starting under grow lights very early is everything on celery.
