My celery is growing quite well in Auckland but is getting this brown fungal problem (I think) - the leaves wither and the stems go brown . Is there any safe spray,etc to use? Thanks David

It sounds like a fungal disease. Celery prefers foll sun and good drainage with good air circulation. Fungal problems are exacerbated in wet soils, high humidity and poor airflow. The fungal spores are soil-born so I suggest you try a new bed with good drainage. A lot of rain and high humidity will make this problem worse. Trust this helps.
