About Galbanum

Galbanum usually appears in the form of masses composed of whitish, reddish, or yellowish tears, from the size of a pins head to that of a pea and larger, irregularly agglutinated by a darker colored yellowish-brown or greenish substance, more or less translucent, and generally mixed with pieces of stems, seeds, or other foreign matters. The odor of galbanum is peculiar and disagreeable; its taste bitterish, warm, and acridTriturated with water, it forms an imperfect milky solution, which on standing deposits the greater portion of what was taken up.

Wild Asafoetida is a tall perennial herb up to 2 m tall, with large 2-3-pinnate leaves with broad oblong, finely toothed leaflets, and large compound umbels of yellow flowers. Secondary umbels are round, about 1 cm across.

Planting and care

Feed plants only sparingly; overfertilization can cause stems to break in the fall. You can add diluted fertilizer into the water, though avoid getting the fertilizer near the plants base; it may help to build a moat in a circle around the plant about 18 inches out.

Galbanum care

An accurate soil test will tell you where your pH currently stands. Acidic (sour) soil is counteracted by applying finely ground limestone, and alkaline (sweet) soil is treated with ground sulfur.If you order roses from a mail-order company, order early, in January or February (March at the latest). They are usually shipped in the spring as bare roots when plants are fully dormant, well before they have leafed out
