In this study, the antimicrobial activity of celery (Apium graveolensis L.) has been reported. The extract of celery were prepared in diethyl ether and tested against P. aeruginosa ATCC 27853, E coli ATCC 25922, K. pneumonia FML 5, S. aureus ATCC 25923, M. smegmatis CCM 2067, M. lutcus A 2971 ve C. albicans ATCC 60192 with the disc diffusion method. Celery had inhibitory activity on K. pneumoniae FML 5, M. sinegmatis CCM 2067, M luteus A 297 1, S. aureus ATCC 25923 and C albicans ATCC 60192 but has no inhibitory activity against other bacteria strains.
