wave  I have just posted a request for angelica seedlings on the "On the scrounge" forum because I want to try this recipe. It looks delicious....I love rhubarb.

That looks worth trying. I haven't got angelica - can't find space for one either - but I do have sweet cicely. I imagine that would work just as well. 

Never assume anything - except an occasional air of intelligence.

I can provide angelica seeds, or having read the recipe, Angelica leaves if you want them, I have a reasonable sized plant, but customer has a couple of massive plants, she'd happily supply a few leaves. Although I'll have to give her the recipe to try herself, as she also has loads of rhubarb that she doen't do much with...

Hi Janet,

Thank you so much, I would love some leaves so I can get going straight away. Some seeds would also be very welcome so I will be ready for next year.

I will PM you my address.  wave

I haven't been able to get sweet cicely going in my garden, though it self-seeds all over P's. Do you know if it can be transplanted, or does it have to be grown from seed?

surprised  It certainly self seeds, as I know to my cost. I once transplanted some into my garden, having bought several pots from a nursery specialising in wild plants & herbs. Within two years they were everywhere......monster Now I let them flourish out on a bit of wild land I have, along with my nettle monsters & other 'take-over' plants. The only thing that won't take over there is mint.....which just dies off within weeks of being planted. I think that is due to being very dry soil & my hose doesn't reach that far.
