Coriandrum sativum

Coriander is related to parsley, and is grown both for its pungent leaves (often called Cilantro), or for the round seeds - both leaves and seeds are used in cooking.


Propagating by seed

From Mid Spring TO Early Summer

Coriander is easy to grow from seed, but seeds need to be sown in the growing site, and not transplanted - root disturbance causes the plant to bolt. Sow seeds outdoors after the last frosts, in a sunny, or partially site, or sow in pots indoors to get an earlier start. Water seeds and seedlings, but do not allow pots to stand in water.

 

Flowering

From Mid Summer TO Late Summer

If you want to harvest the seeds of coriander, allow the plants to flower. Flowering usually occurs in mid Summer. If you do not want the seeds, cut off the flowering stalks when they start to grow.

 

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Early Summer

Grow coriander from seed in the place where you want it to grow, as it doesn't transplant well - root disturbance causes premature bolting
