Q. Putting a 1 LT Milk Carton Over the Celery

Does placing an empty 1 liter milk carton (with both ends removed) around the celery help it to grow straight and intact?

Yes, it will. It will also help to blanch it and make it more mild flavored (which is often desired). Milk carton covers are a common thing for celery growers.

Q. Can Celery Be Gown in a Container

I know certain vegetables can be grown in a container pot, but can celery be grown in a container as well? (I was given several celery plants). Thanks for any info you can help me with!

You can try, but celery is temperamental in the first place. Make sure you keeps its roots cool as best you can and keep it well watered.

Q. Keeping Celery Stalks Straight and Bunched

We have celery in this year, it’s about 100 days in. What do you suggest for keeping the bunch vertical and compacted?

Cardboard milk cartons (top and bottom cut off) work great for this. And they blanch the plant as well. You can also use hair bands, like the kind that a person would use to put their hair up in a pony tail.
