    How to Grow Angelica

    When to Plant Angelica Seeds

    Refrigerate Angelica seeds before sowing into the garden or start them in flats. Seeds must be cold stratified, so indoor plantings must be exposed to cold temperatures of 39 degrees or below for 3 weeks warming up in order to germinate. When sown into the garden, plant either before the first frost or after the last frost of the season.

    Where to Plant Angelica Seeds

    Plant Angelica in prepared garden beds that are nutritious, slightly acidic, with moist to wet soils with exposure to full sun (6-8 hours of sun per day) to partial sun (4-6 hours of sun per day). Do not allow the soil to dry out. Despite the need of sunlight, Angelica performs better when not exposed to the full heat of the evening sun and prefers the morning and noon sun, as it is less harsh.

    How to Plant Angelica Seeds

    Bury Angelica seeds in the surface of the moistened soil no deeper than 1/4th of an inch, and do not cover, as light is required for proper germination. Keep germinating seeds moist. Space seedlings approximately 12-24 inches apart.

    How to Harvest Angelica

    Leaves and stems of Angelica are edible, and can simply be cut from the plant or pulled up entirely. Roots and seeds are often used for making herbal teas. Be sure to trim back flower heads and seed pods when harvesting for the leaves, as when the plant goes to seed, it will often die.
