Here is an article about re-growing celery to add to the spring onions.....!!  smile

I believe the writer of it is the same Chez who often comments on Fiona's blog articles. She has lots of money-saving ideas on her blog which are useful.

I'm definitely going to try that in the summer. I've never grown celery but that looks fairly foolproof.

Progress Report:

I had the remains of 3 small bunches of spring onions that I purchased at various times in January. I haven't had to buy anymore since then because they have produced plenty of new green shoots for my dishes. I used to buy at least 4 bunches each month. Now they have produced plenty of fresh roots so I think I will plant them in pots as they do tend to topple over & slip out of the shallow water. I am really pleased. I know it is only a small saving in terms of money but it is great always having fresh shoots instead of shrivelled dried out or soft smelly ones in the bottom of the fridge.  smile

My celery is doing well, too.  Lots of new leaves which I adore.  It's even better than growing a carrot top isn't it?

I'll try that again!

Its brilliant, I've done it since reading on here, and I had to chop mine back the other day as I'd not used them for a few days and they were getting a bit long, I have them in a large jam jar with a couple of inches of water.
