Angelica, AKA: Wild Celery, has been used for hundreds of years as a seasoning for fish, essential oils, flavoring for liqueurs, and fragrances. Even the stems themselves can be candied! Similar in aroma to musk or juniper. Angelica is a flowering herb that grows to 4 to 5 feet tall. The plants spread 2 feet wide and display small greenish, yellow flowers through the summer months. They form in clusters or umbels resembling Fennel or Queen Anne Lace. Angelica is fragrant and will attract an array of insects to the garden. It feeds beneficial pollinators and insects, including butterflies, bumblebees, and honeybees. Angelica prefers full sun to partial shade and moist soil. Angelica has both culinary and medicinal uses.

Angelica seeds need cold stratification to break dormancy. Seeds sown directly where the plants are to grow in the fall will naturally be exposed to stratification over winter. Indoor-sown Angelica seeds should be planted into moist compost and stored in a fridge at 39°F for 30 days, then move to 65°F to germinate. Sow the seed in growing cells or pots containing a quality seed starting mix. The seeds need light to germinate, so press them lightly into the mix. Transplant seedlings when they have their first set of true leaves.
