Coriander is one of the most popular herbs and has broadly lobed leaves grown on upright stems. Coriander leaves are widely used for flavouring variety meals as well as for garnishing salads and dishes. The leaves are similar to parsley, and the herbs can be substituted for each other, bearing in mind that coriander has a more citrus-like taste.
Sowing and Caring:
Sow in shallow drills 1cm deep or broadcast in open ground. Cover with soil and water well. Thin out the seedlings as they grow to a final spacing of 25cm.
Mr Digwell makes both an early and late sowing to ensure continuity of leaf supply throughout the summer. Plants can be left to bolt and seeds can be harvested for cooking.
Mr Digwell's seeds are of the highest quality, foil packed for freshness and a longer life, with many varieties achieving an Award of Garden Merit.
