Corianda Tips

Coriander needs to be grown in a really cool part of the garden where it will not be as prone to go to seed with the heat. “Cilantro” is a form of coriander that has been developed to tolerate more heat and to stay leafy for longer. Keep some seed for future propagation and sow frequently to ensure an even supply if it keeps going to seed. If you remove any flower stalks that appear, this will help to keep it leafy. In the Tropics & Sub-Tropics, plant in autumn and treat as an annual.  Ref:  Sheryl Backhouse
