How to grow
- Coriander crop thrives well in temperatures between 17° to 27°C. Coriander seeds are best sown directly in pots rather than growing them in seed trays and then transplanting the sprouts.
- You can grow coriander in full sun and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.2 to 6.8. Sow the coriander seeds about half to one inch deep in the soil. Space the seeds at a gap of approximately 6 inches. Press the soil over the seeds and cover with the half-inch layer of fine mulch. Water thoroughly.
- Water the plants in dry periods. Be sure to not over-water the plant to avoid root rot. Good soil drainage is essential to ensure healthy root health as coriander has deep taproots.
- Germination of coriander takes up to 2-3 weeks. Remember to thin young plants to 20 cm apart to allow them to grow to their full size. To extend the coriander harvest, regularly snip soft stems, rotating the plant while you harvest.
How to Care for Coriander
Coriander prefers cool weather similar to spinach and lettuce alike. It can be grown in partial sun as the herb does not demand full soon.
- Avoid transplanting or repotting the germinated seeds and prefer starting from the seeds straight. This will help you avoid bolting.
- The key to growing healthy coriander herb is regular and steady watering. Remember to mulch to keep the soil surface cool.
- For a steady supply, we suggest planting small patches every 2-3 weeks throughout the growing season.
Harvesting Coriander Herb
Coriander can be harvested when the plant has become six inches tall. At this height, the leaves of the herb will be tender and least bitter. The stems tend to be more pungent as compared to the leaves. Cut the gentle stems at the soil level.
