Trying to germinate celery seeds needs a lot of care and time. You need to have a very fine seed raising mixture. Use a sprayer to wet the soil not a hose. You need to plant the right time. The seed is small and takes 2-3 weeks to germinate, so means you need to have the soil moist but not wet for all that time. Unless you are prepared to do this then you will have failure. I would normally suggest buying seedlings from Bunnings/nursery but for 6 years I bought celery and end up with some other thing different - Italian parsley??? so I don't try any more.
