  1. Question

    Would planting the angelica in a gopher cage of chicken wire be effective for preventing roots from being eaten, or would it restrict the plant?

  3. Question

    R. Nielsen

    The Angelica is biennial. What would I need to do so it can reseed and maybe spread? There is a lot of wild Angelica growing in our area along the banks of streams. But I won’t try to collect it as the adjoining fields are sprayed with RoundUp for soybeans and corn. That’s not our land, we are organic. I’ve ordered from you for years and always have been happy with the results. I really appreciate your books too.

      Greetings from Southern Oregon! Angelica makes a great show of seeds, like you said in the fall of the second year. Once all those seeds drop there are sure to be some volunteers. The challenge is in protecting the roots from ground-dwelling rodents that may want to eat them (they are juicy and delicious to such mammals). So the main thing is to plant enough Angelica in the first place to assure that some will make it through to seed. We’re experimenting with surrounding the plants with fish emulsion during dormancy, not only to nourish them (and they do like it) but hopefully to make a stink so the gophers stay away.

      Hi Billie,
      Herbalists use Angelica dried plant or root as an aromatic bitter. There is a great monograph on the medicinal preparations and uses of the plant in “Making Plant Medicine” 4th edition pages 110 to 111. Richo

      Will this do well as a potted plant indoors?

      Hi Kaitlyn, We do keep potted Angelica in the greenhouse when the plants are sizing up in the spring, and sometimes we overwinter these same plants successfully, outdoors, still in pots, and they do fine in pots. However, Angelica doesn’t make that great of a houseplant because its a biennial and gets very large in the second year and then expires.
