Sow direct or in pots to transplant later. Celery can be tricky to get going as seed is very fine, it is slow to germinate and seedling growth is slow (making them easy targets for slugs and snails). Keep moist, do not let seed dry out. Grows well in full sun with plenty of compost. Keep well watered.
