Can anyone tell me how long Angelica giga seeds will keep? I heard that they won't keep longer than a year. I have some from 07 or 08 not sure they will be any good. Thanks

Hi Hibiscusfan,
Angelica seed is know for being short on viability. I would say the 07 is a definite no go. 08 might sprout. I've had seeds of short viability plants that supposedly should not of sprouted after a year sprout.
It won't hurt to try. You can winter sow a pot outside. If you get no sprouts, you won't be too disappointed, and you can still use the potting soil for something else. : )
