We love this thrifty method to make one bunch of celery last a lifetime.

Check out the blog at http://www.17apart.com/2012/02/growing-celery-indoors-never-buy-celery.html  for all the information you need to regrow your celery over and over again. In these tough economic times most of us are tightening our belts and being a little more careful with our spending, so we'll definitely be giving this a go and saving ourselves some money. All you need is the stem of one bunch of celery, the part you'd usually just throw away. Instead place this, stalk side down, in a saucer of water and change the water every couple of days. After a week you should see some leaves growing from the centre. The next step is to plant this is a pot of soil, covering the old celery growth but allowing the new shoots to peep through the soil. After five or six months you'll have celery that's ready to eat, but don't forget to save the base to start the process all over again! This would be a great easy project for kids too.
