Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

Sow the seeds thinly on the surface of moist but not sodden compost in trays, pots or modules.
Cover the seeds with a light sprinkling of vermiculite or fine compost.
The seeds will need a cold spell to break dormancy. Place the container in a polythene bag and seal before placing in a fridge at around 4 degrees centigrade for 3 - 4 weeks.
After this time remove from the bag and place in a propagator or if preferred leave in the sealed bag to germinate. Do not exclude light as the seeds need light to germinate. Germinate at the temperature suggested above.
Once the seeds have started to germinate remove from the propagator or bag and place in cooler but not cold conditions. Protect the young seedlings from frost.
If after 30 days the seeds have still not germinated return to the fridge for a further 3 - 4 weeks. Ensure the compost is moist but not sodden otherwise the seeds may rot.
Once the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into 7 - 10 cm pots, preferably biodegradable pots to reduce the chance of root damage.
Grow on in a frost free greenhouse or cold frame, keeping the compost moist but not sodden.
Plant out when all risk of frost has passed.
Harden off over several days before planting out to reduce shock.

Direct Sowing

Angelica seeds tend to have a low germination rate and will need a cold spell to break dormancy.
Sow 3 - 4 seeds per station in a well prepared seed bed with soil of a fine tilth. Each station should be 100 cm apart.
Lightly cover with fine soil and water well. A marker allocating the sowing locations may be beneficial.
Once the seedlings are large enough to handle carefully thin to one strong seedling per station. The stronger thinning's can be used to fill in any gaps or transplanted elsewhere in the garden.

Growing On

Older plants dislike their roots being disturbed and therefore any transplanting should be done when the plants are young and no older than at the 'two true leaf stage' to avoid damaging the tap root.
Water the young plants well until established.
Tall growing angelica will need protection from the wind. Add canes if necessary.
Water frequently in dry weather.
The life of the plants will end soon after the production of flowers and seeds.


Harvesting of leaves can start as soon as the plants are a good size and are growing strong.
Avoid overharvesting when young so that the plants can make a fast recovery.


Avoid growing angelica close to fennel or dill to avoid cross pollination.
