Celeriac.. any pearls of wisdom?

Toying with the idea of trying to grow celeriac in containers. Does anyone know if this can be done or how easy/tricky it is?

    Never tried it in containers but it doesn't make much of a deep root, much like beetroot in that respect, so soil depth shouldn't be a problem
    Eight out of ten owners who expressed a preference said their cats preferred other peoples gardens
  • watering could be an issue, if it doesn't get regular, even watering I found it goes woody.
    So containers could be a problem.
    I choose the rooms that I live in with care,
    The windows are small and the walls almost bare,
    There's only one bed and there's only one prayer;
    I listen all night for your step on the stair.
