Coriander imparts a unique flavour to Indian curries and oriental dishes, and is a valuable herb in the organic garden. Coriander has a lacy, feathery foliage with an aroma quite different from any other herb. Coriander is easy to grow from seed. Choose a position which is both sunny and sheltered. Sow the seeds in autumn and winter in sub-tropical and tropical areas, and in spring and autumn in temperate zones. Sow the seed directly into the soil 12 mm deep, 30 cm apart. If they're planted during hot weather, the plants will quickly go to seed producing few sprays of foliage.
