How to regrow celery from the grocery store

Super easy way to extend the life of grocery store purchased celery


Cut the root end of the bunch of celery 2-4 inches from the bottom. Place this root end in a small bowl.

Add a small amount of water to the bowl so the root end is setting in about 1/4th inch of water.

Refresh the water as needed.

After there are roots, you can plant the celery in a pot or in the garden.

When the plant is established you can trim a stalk or two at a time from the outside edges. It will continue to regrow.

This celery has been trimmed/ harvested from many times.
