I am so excited my Angelica is coming up! And growing fast now.
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
The crushed leaves are said to reduce travel sickness whilst a tea made from Aangelica is purported to improve lost appetites. Additionally, if stewed and added to bath water Angelica said to relieve rheumatism and aching muscles.
Angelica is in fact a member of the carrot family, and an ancient and versatile herb.
Young shoots have many uses, including being added to salads, while the stems and roots can be used as a vegetable, and for flavouring gin and vermouth; the two-year-old stems can also be made into cake decorations, sweet meats or chopped into ice creams, or use the seeds in pastries!
