Coriander

Aromatic easy-to grow herb with edible roots and seeds.

Coriander bolt quickly, so sow in succession for a continuous cropping.  Grow under cover in winter.

  •  Choose light soil topped up with manure or compost.  
  • Position in light shade (not full sun). 
  • Seeds can be grown in spring, once frosts have passed and the soil has started to warm.
  • Coriander hates being transplanted, so seed where it will grow.
  • Sow the large seeds thinly directly into the garden.

 

Coriander can self-seed, if it is in a spot it likes.  Place in a semi-shaded spot close to the annual salad bed.  (The same is also true of dill and borage).
