They came from Marshalls, which introduced starter plants in its catalogue this year and has extended the range for 1995. Marshalls offers two different kinds of celery, `Victoria' and `Pink Ice'. Both cost £1.95 for 10 plants, compared with £1.29 for a packet of `Victoria' seed. The flavour is not at all bitter, and the stalks are long and crunchy. In a drier season, it may have been less successful, but I won't bother to grow celery from seed again this season.
All the plants are delivered by first-class post in late May. For details contact S.E. Marshall & Co, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire PE13 2RF (0945 583407).Reuse content
