Does anyone have any experience of grwoing Angelica?
I have a small plant in a pot and want to plant it out in the garden. I
assume by the look of it that it will like some protection from the savage
summer heat (thus semi shade), but what soil conditions does it enjoy and
how much water does it like? Anyone know please?
Yes, you are correct that it needs some shade during the hot time of
It prefers rich, well drained soil and moisture. Drainage is important
it does need some summer water.
Angelica is a biennial, sort-of. If you cut off the flowering stalks
set seed, it will grow for several years.
It has a large tap root, so take care when transplanting it.
It is a very attractive plant, which I haven't grown for awhile. I
will go up in the mountains this summer and get some native seeds
Thanks for the advice Emilie. Have you ever tried candying the stems? I
love candied Angelica and, since I have not seen candied angelica in the
shops for decades, that is one of the reasons why I want to try growing it.
