How to grow coriander from seed

Sow your coriander seeds shallowly two to a pot, or direct in the ground at a spacing of 10-15cm. Continue to sow every few weeks for a continuous harvest of fresh leaves. Always keep your plants well-watered as well as partly shaded in the summer to avoid bolting to seed. We prefer to sow and grow in pots, placed in small bowls or trays of water, a few centimetres deep, to keep cultivation and harvesting a simple and effort-free process.

Harvest after four to five weeks from sowing; into the autumn and year-round indoors.

What to feed your coriander plants

As coriander is a short rotation crop, any good quality potting compost will do fine.

Keeping pests away

Start indoors to minimise the damage caused by slugs and snails during the seedling stage. Coriander is sensitive to transplanting due to its taproot, and we find better success sowing in biodegradable coco coir pots, planting out, pot and all.

Bolting is the term used when the plant goes to seed at the expense of leafy vegetative production. This happens when the plant is stressed. Keep watered and provide some shade in the summer months to minimise this annoying effect. That said, the seeds are extremely useful as well!
