non existant celeriac

I purchased small celeriac plants from a garden centre and planted in raised bed. They grew very well - went to seed.... but when I went to pull them last week, there was a healthy root structure but no tuber to cook with? I pulled five .. but still have one in the veg. plot? What did I do wrong?? Gerrie, Templeorum, Co Kilkenny Posted: 20/11/2009


If they flowered and went to seed, the energy that would have gone to make the swollen root went into making the flower stem. This can happen due to weather effects.
