The Apium graveolens seeds can be used to grow a lot of plants including tomatoes, peppers and melons. This is one kind of crop that people really enjoy growing because it is very easy to grow. The Apium plants do not really need a lot of care, making it ideal for those who are new at gardening.
The Apium graveolens seeds can be found in two forms. These include dried and fresh form. Those interested in growing Apium for household consumption should obviously opt for the dried form, but those who would like to grow the fresh form can also buy the fresh seeds from local nurseries. If you have enough time, you could even grow Apium in a hydroponic system.
Growing Apium in a hydroponic system will require some extra care. The Apium graveolens seeds should be kept in a dark and moisture-free environment. If they are not kept this way, the Apium might get destroyed as the roots will not be able to penetrate into the soil to get the nutrients that it needs. There are special pots made for this, called the Apium pots, which can be bought from any garden centre. They are easy to use and come with different accessories to make them more attractive.
The container grown seeds can easily be obtained from any garden centre. One thing that the beginner gardeners should know is that Apium graveolens cannot be germinated from the seeds found in bins. Instead, they need to go to a nursery and buy container grown plants. When choosing containers, it is important to choose ones that are easy to maintain. Some examples of these types of plants are the Lilypad, Ascocenda and Potrystal.
In case you are growing Apium in containers, the best idea would be to get hold of young cuttings from your own plantings. This is much easier than trying to grow them from seedlings that have been grown in fertile soil. Most seeds offered at garden centres are actually seedlings which are under a year old. However, even seedlings grown from young cuttings will offer you some benefits. For example, these plants are less likely to be eaten by deer. Deer usually prey on plants that are quite young and which have not yet produced any fruit.
It is very important to note that Apium can also be stored in container grown plants, such as the Urinia cambogia seeds or the Red Clover seeds. In fact, it is common for most Apium enthusiasts to have a collection of Apium plants in a glass jar or some other container, ready for replanting when needed. Apium seeds can also be stored in silica jars.
If you are growing Apium in bulk and want to save money, then you may also want to consider using Apium blossoms in a variety of flower arrangements, such as vases, potted bouquets and even free form flower bouquets. In addition, Apium can also be used in the same way that onions and leeks are used. These two foods are used in salad dressings to add more color and flavor to the salad while retaining the natural fiber of the green leafy vegetables. Apium can be added to the salad along with tomatoes and other greens to make a tasty, natural appetizer.
One way that Apium is better preserved in bulk would be by drying it in the sun. To do this, bundle up a dozen or more seeds and place them in a single layer inside a plastic bag. After 24 hours in the sun, the seeds will dry out and turn black. This process can take several days depending on the amount of sun exposure the Apium receives each day. Once dried, Apium can be placed in a sealed container and kept in a dark place for several months, but not forever. Once the seeds have absorbed moisture from the air, they will need to be replanted.
