• Angelica

    3.50
    A herb taking its name from an angel who revealed its virtues of protection from infection to a monk. It is a biennial, though often lives longer, and can grow to a height of 2m. A statuesque plant which is is easy to grow, prefers damp ground and self-seeds readily. All parts of this lovely plant are subtly aromatic and have both medicinal and culinary uses. It is often cooked with tart fruits like rhubarb, helping to reduce the acidity. The seeds are used in biscuits, and both seed and root are ingredients in some liqueurs.

  • This is a unique variety with fine, feathery bright green foliage. It gives all the distinctive taste and aroma of coriander with an especially sweet fragrance.

  • This translates from French as ‘curled dark green’, an accurate description of this old French variety. The tightly curled, fresh-tasting leaves stand clear of the ground on long stalks for clean and easy harvesting. This variety does well through winter, and can be grown under cover for a year-round supply. BIENNIAL Certified Organic Average Seeds Per Pack: 200

It is very easy to grow, and its fern-like, aromatic leaves are perfect for salads, with fish, pickles and sauces. The seeds can also be harvested and used for flavouring, particularly along with gherkins. Certified Organic Average Seeds Per Pack: 200
