So today, a Pinterest fail - let's be honest, we've all had them!
Last summer I saw on Pinterest that you can regrow celery stalks from the stubby end bit of a bunch. If I remember correctly the pin said "Never buy celery again" or words to that effect.
"What a great idea" I thought, and "I must try this"
It all started quite well, see the photo above, how exciting.
Then the stubby bit started to go a bit mouldy and I thought it would be running out of goodness so I planted it up into a pot of compost.
Then about 3 weeks passed and this happened:I'm not quite sure where I went wrong. I kept the soil moist, it was on the windowsill, it just sort of collapsed, withered and died.
Should I have buried the stubby bit in soil completely do you think? Should I have left a longer stubby bit? Did it need to be planted outside in the garden?
Has anyone actually managed to make this work? I'd love to hear how.
My fail hasn't stopped me loving Pinterest though, funny that!
