Description
Angelica makes an attractive backdrop for other plants. The flowers are small and numerous, yellowish or greenish, are grouped into large, globular umbels which bear pale yellow, oblong fruits. Together with its bright green leaves they are a pleasing contrast plant in the garden.

From the 10th century on, Angelica was cultivated as a vegetable and medicinal plant. Angelica is unique among the Umbelliferae for its pervading aromatic odour. The stems are both used as a vegetable and as a flavouring. Leaves are used as an herb for making teas or in salad. Its seeds are used as for flavouring liqueurs including absinthes, gin, aquavits, and bitters. Foods, desserts and confectionery are also flavoured with the seeds and it is also able to be turned into a jam. The hollow stems of Angelica archangelica may be eaten so the long bright-green stems are often candied or used as food decoration pieces.

There are about thirty varieties of Angelica, but Angelica archangelica is the only one officially employed in medicine. All parts of the plant have medicinal properties, and are used in the treatment of respiratory ailments, as well as an aid to digestion. Always consult a medical or herbal practitioner before embarking on any program of using a new medical herb. Some herbs should not be taken in certain situations, for example pregnancy, or for certain health conditions where adverse reactions may be possible. Alternatively, you may have allergies to an herb, or induce side effects from other medication and health conditions. So please do not take without qualified medical advice.

Grow Notes
Angelica grows only in well drained but damp soil, preferably near rivers or deposits of water so would be great in a pot or with its feet in your pond or water feature! Angelica grows to 2.4m in height. It can be susceptible to powdery mildew so water the roots not the leaves.

Sow
Start germination as soon as possible upon receiving as Angelica seeds have both a low germination rate and the seed is comparatively short lived. Plant direct in autumn or winter, or in spring after refrigeration has occurred. Keep the remaining seeds sealed in their packs, in the fridge as this will help to keep them viable.

The seeds should be placed into a fridge at 4°C for 30 days, then moved to the warmth of around 18°C for germination.

Plant in trays or pots containing a good quality seed compost. Barely cover the seeds as they need light to germinate. The seedlings should be transplanted when they have their first set of true leaves and are still small, plant into their final positions at about 1m apart.

Germination
30-35 days at 15-18°C. Seeds can be slow to germinate taking up to 6 months. Protect from aphids, slugs and snails.

Maturity
A hardy biennial plant, during its first year it grows only leaves as a leafy bush, but during its second year, its fluted stem can reach a height of 2.5 meters. It may die down to disappear completely from sight in winter, but it will reappear in spring. Self-seeding. Plants normally die after producing seed but the life of the plant can be extended 1 or more years if the flowers are removed before seeds are formed. Once established, Angelica can also be propagated by root division.
