Organic Angelica Archangelica «Holy Ghost»

Angelica archangelica is a majestic plant that deserves a prominent position at the back of a border or in a wild part of the garden. It loves woodland conditions, with plenty of moist shade, preferably near rivers or deposits of water.

In their first year, plants produce leafy bushes, and then die down and disappear completely from sight in winter in their second year they reach full size.

Angelica makes an attractive backdrop for other plants, not only because of its height. Angelica’s bright green leaves, made up of three finely toothed leaflets, and its stems also are a pleasing contrast in the garden. Angelica’s long sturdy hollow stems are ribbed. Delicately coloured, they start out purple at the base and lighten to a pale yellow green.

All parts of the aromatic plant have culinary or medicinal uses, but it is best known for its candied stems, used as a cake decoration. The stems and seeds for use in confectionery and flavouring and the preparation of liqueurs. (e.g. Chartreuse, Bénédictine, Vermouth and Dubonnet). Angelica seeds and angelica roots are sometimes used in making absinthe.

‘Holy Ghost’ Angelica

Angelica, sometimes referred to as garden angelica and wild celery, is from the Apiaceae family. It is a biennial plant, cultivated for its sweetly scented edible stems and roots.

Our seed comes from our friend, the great Frank Morton, of Wild Garden Seeds in Oregon.

NOTE: Germination rate and seed life duration is notoriously low on angelica.

GROWING TIPS: Angelica seed is notorious for being difficult to germinate. This seed was collected in the fall of 2018, and it is has been kept in fridge since then to mimic its fussy stratification habit, which is essentially wild.

With seed that is dried out like ours, we recommend starting seeds in pots or trays with potting soil (get it wet), placing these in a plastic bag, and putting them in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. Angelica seed needs direct sunlight for germination. DO NOT bury the seed when you plant it. Instead, scatter it on top of the soil that you are planting into, and keep it wet. Remove from fridge and take pots/trays out of plastic bag, then set outside in direct sun.

You can also try direct seeding in the spring by simply scattering seed on top of prepared soil and keeping it wet.
