Ooh, thanks! If the celery doesn't take root this time, I'll try again, next time we make a trip out to Costco. :) (Too bad it isn't sold much in normal stores. They sell it at 105 yen per stalk/piece at those stores! That's about $1.30!! Can you believe it? If we can grow our own celery, my friend and I will be so thankful and happy!!  Thanks again for the info, and no worries about the god in the garden stuff. Learned to filter out that stuff long ago. XD

How to Grow Organic Celery in 4 Easy Steps

Another bit of information about re-growing celery.

Re-rooting celery ... sorry it is god in the garden, but the information about celery is what we are after.

Nerdless, probably, you would have a better chance of saving it by putting it in a saucer of water. I have never done celery, but carrots can be cut, put in a saucer of water, grow some roots and then put in the garden. They usually grow. Celery should do the same thing. I'll have to get out my old Cub Scout and Campfire Girls leaders' manual to see ... now, where did I store them? My children are 49 years old this year. It has been a while.

Celery.... So, I heard that if you cut the base from the stalks and replant it, you have a good chance of growing more celery stalks... So a friend of mine and I are doing just that. We didn't have time last night to do it, so he had me ziplock the celery and put it in the fridge. Something worries me, though... I think his settings are a bit too cold and that ice crystals could form into the celery stalk bits. Does anyone know if it will damage the growth ability of the plant itself to replenish itself?

Annie, I just checked with Dave's Garden, my favorite guide, 


He reports USDA Zones 8-11. I have a wonderful plant source here in town and will ask him for a suggestion for something this lovely. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Oh my goodness!  I got goosebumps from the photo with Mt. Hood in the background.  Gorgeous!  Looks like the perfect spot for a picnic.

As for the gloriosa lily, I think it will grow almost anywhere.  Here in Florida, we don't have to dig up the tubers in the winter, but in colder climates it sounds as though you treat them similar to tulips.

It will continuously bloom for about a month... I think (I will have to pay better attention this year, as it might bloom for longer).  They grow on a climbing vine that benefits from a trellis or fence near by.  In the photo, you can faintly see a yellow string in the back.  I put a few garden stakes around them this year, then wove the twine from stake to stake to make a support web for them.  Right now the patch has about 50 flowers blooming!

Annie, this lily is just splendid. How long does it stay in bloom?
