This can be really tricky to keep going in the garden. It seems to like strictly coastal conditions where it is periodically drenched in salt spray, and needs a spring-fed water source carrying quite a high fertiliser load with it. Keep moist and well fed in the garden (like standard celery). Easily grown from seed and best treated as a biennial.
