Growing your seeds

Celery

Days to germinate in days : Ca. 16

Sowing temperature: Ca. 18 C

Days before Harvest: Ca. 6-8 weeks

Yellow – green stalks without string, which can be eaten raw as well as cooked. Sow directly in the garden from late March to early July. Emergence can be accelerated through germination in a greenhouse, then prick out the plants in pots or soil blocks, and allow to harden off. Transplant to soil with good water retention. Harvest before frost starts. Celery has diuretic powers, is low in calories and very rich in vitamins.

Broccoli

Days to germinate in days : Ca. 14

Sowing temperature: ca. 15 C

Days before Harvest : 60 days

A very well-known, old and tried-and-tested Italian variety from 1880. A mid to late variety with a fairly long harvesting period. Can be harvested approx 60 days after transplanting. Best sown in a greenhouse directly in pots or first in a seedbed. Keep soil moist. Then transplant on time in well worked and fertilized soil. Use anti-insect nets to protect young plants against cabbage midge and cabbage root fly. Cultivate each year in a different spot. Harvest while the buds are unopened.

Spinach

Days to germinate in days : Ca. 18

Sowing temperature: ca. 10 – 15 C

Days before Harvest : Ca. 6 – 8 weeks

Sow from mid spring to mid-summer in open ground, either scattering the seed or planting in rows. Thin out slightly if necessary with 25cm between each plant. The Spinach is suitable for stir-fries as the leaves cook very quickly. It is also very good when combined with pancakes or Turkish pasta dishes.
