How To Grow Coriander

Ok I hope you are ready, because today is herb gardening day. I thought I would try growing another new herb to add to the basil, sage, French Taragon and all the other fresh herbs I already grow. The next one on the list that we will be looking at is how to grow coriander.

In the past I have mostly used this as a dried herb, but since I can grow my own why not experiment with the fresh version too. You can grow it indoors all year round or outside from early Spring to late June. Apparently you can also grow it from cuttings, but today we will be using the seeds.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • coriander seeds
  • potting soil
  • compost
  • small pots
  • seedling trays (optional)

I think its is best to start your seeds indoors, each time. You can use small pots or seedling trays, pushing each seed about a quarter inch into your potting mix or compost, do not cover the seeds. Water well and germination should occur within 21 days. For a continuous supply, you may plant a new batch every 2 to 3 weeks.

Keep your pots or trays either under a grow light or in an area that receives sunlight such as the windowsill. If you plant the seeds directly into your garden beds, they should be thinned out to half a foot apart. Harvest a few leaves from each plant when ready to use.
