Get a bit of 100mm PVC or black plastic and wrap the celery. It blanches the stalks and makes them tender. Otherwise it will have a strong flavor and tends to be bitter.

we use 2 litre milk containers. the cardboard ones are easier to remove but the plastic ones work just as well. It also helps in gaining length in the stalks.

I've been using the 100mm pvc on some and it does improve the taste, I just find them a pain to get off as the celery gets too big.

I will try the black plastic and cardboard milk carton ideas, thanks for the tips. :thumb:

:wave: My camera broke and as I result I haven't posted in a while, I decided to try out the mobile phone camera and as the photos aren't to bad I thought I would show you what I have been up to last few months.

These are my trees for next winter plant out, all grown from seed or cutting: Chestnut, black and white mulberry, white sapote and tamarillo.

This is the poo soaker 2000, I soak all my manure (well not MY manure but you get what I mean) for 2 weeks before using so the weed seeds germinate and die first
