Seeds - Angelica
All of our seeds are gathered from plants grown in our own biodynamic garden.
Angelica (Angelica archangelica) is an tall biennial with with umbels of white/chartreuse flowers. Angelica prefers moist, fertile soil and will readily self-sow. The leaves and stems are edible.
Angelica can be difficult to germinate and does need to be cold-stratified (see below).
Honeybee forage plant.
~75 seeds per pack. This packet will cover an area of approximately 300 square feet.
Full to partial sun.
|White/Chartruese||Spring – Midsummer||6 feet||24-48 inches||4-10|
Planting instructions: Seeds require light to germinate, so surface sow or barely cover. Seeds should emerge in 3 to 4 weeks after cold-stratification. Angelica develops a tap root, which does not like to be disturbed, so transplant to the garden when the seedlings are still small.
These seeds require cold-stratification for 30 days to germinate successfully. To cold stratify seeds, place the seeds in damp sand, damp vermiculite or between damp paper towels (cover in plastic or place in plastic bags to retain moisture) and store at 36-38 degrees F for 30 days. If seeds sprout during storage, go ahead and pot them. Transplant outside after danger of frost has passed.
