Re-growing Celery from Celery

Have you heard of Re-growing Celery from Celery?

I LOVE this idea for my garden! Did you know that you can grow another complete celery stalk from the bottom piece that you cut off and throw away? Cut off the end that you would normally "throw away" and then place it in a small dish filled with warm water.

Next "pot" the celery stalk (Stalk Side Up) or place in your garden. Just dig a small hole, fill it with water and set the end in the hole, then cover it up with an inch or so of soil. Water thoroughly. That is it! Now the "end" will grow into a full stalk of celery! Rinse and Repeat and you never have to buy celery again! Talk about a way to save money! This photo is taken on day 7 and as you can see it is working!

    Well, that is just too cool. I will have to try this. For those who haven't heard, you can keep celery in your refrigerator a lot longer if you keep it wrapped in tin foil. This really works. I've been doing this for about 6 months now. I used to have to

    Isn't it true celery doesn't like heat? Can you grow the celery inside in a room with bright light? Thanks
