How To Grow Celery For Free

There's something so satisfying about finding a second life for something destined for the trash or compost bin!  This gardening idea is easy enough for kids to do and requires no sill!  You can regrow more celery from the root end that you normally throw away!

When you buy your celery, simply cut off the root end.  Set it aside.

Take a small jar that will support the end.  Stick the celery end inside the jar.  Fill about half way up with water.  

Set it in a sunny window and remember to keep replacing the water as needed {likely every few days}. Eventually, small celery sprouts {I've had up to three at a time} will pop out of the top and roots will grow from the bottom.  Divide the plants if more than one appear and plant in the soil after the last spring frost date.

That's it!  Truly trash to treasure.  

Happy gardening!

I've always wanted to try this, perhaps the next time I buy celery I will give it a shot!
