HOW TO GROW FROM SEEDS
Coriander is one of the easiest growing herbs. Seeds can be started in well-prepared soil outdoors or sown in pots filled with multi-purpose compost in early summer. Sow seeds thinly and cover lightly. Germination will usually take between 7-20 days. Here is a little tip, sow every three or four weeks for a constant supply of leaves. If growing for seed production, thin out to leave a 10cm gap among plants and make sure they are given a sunny site. Sowing under cover ensures the seed is well covered and kept moist. Propagate at 15-18°C.
CARE AFTER GERMINATION
After a few days, the seeds will start to germinate. Keep soil and compost damp, but avoid overwatering. Dry soil or compost can cause plants to bolt or flower prematurely. Plants do not normally need feeding, but the occasional liquid feed of a balanced fertilizer can be used as a pick-me-up. Weed regularly around plants grown for seed production and to prevent a check to growth. Try to maintain a constant level of moisture.
