I've grown it in the past, and sometimes it's a little nibbled on, but otherwise isn't problematic or difficult, and we have a lot of clay/sand/rocks in our soil.

At the end of one growing season, after cutting down the rest of what was out there before frost could get it, there were about three brown paper grocery bags worth of it. So, yeah, it's good stuff worth trying. Also, you could think about growing something like this
"Pak Choi Toy Choi" which is basically the same, but not as big, so it matures faster -- which is nice in short growing season climates, which I'm sure you can appreciate.

I've never tried Bok Choy. I'd be tempted but we'll be recieving it in our CSA share this year so we decided to grow others instead.

Yes, I've grown it successfully. It is definitely a cool-weather crop, so you can plant it soon, like cabbage, spinach, etc. Thing about staggering plantings, or otherwise it will all be ready to eat at the same time. emoticon

I have never grown Bok Choy or celery but I have really gotten on a stir fry kick because I purchased a Wok and love it. I would be interested to find out how well bok choy grows. My neighbor always grew cabbage and I grew squash so we would trade. Also I would like to find out the difference in which would grow easier the Bok Choy or Nappa cabbage.

I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have
made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand the things
you have taught my people.

yes....I've tried it a couple times. It hasn't been real prolific and wants to bolt in June just as it starts to get to a pickable size. I think I'm going to get my worm tea working on it this year and see if I can get it pumped up a bit more. It is a good idea to start it inside and transplant if you have hot summers. I like having it for stir fry and could use a lot more than I've gotten.
