Growing Instrutions

Coriander likes a sunny spot, well-drained soil and a steady supply of both water and fertiliser. It grows equally well in pots or in garden beds.  Sow coriander seed 6mm deep in rows 24cm apart. Each plant should be 10cm apart. See that the seeds are buried in soil and keep the soil always moist and well drained till the seeds germinate. If water is found stagnant, seeds fail to germinate.  Germination may occur after 10 days. In a full seed two plants may grow as each half seed produces a plant. In summer water well and keep soil slightly moist and in colder wet conditions water when soil dries up.Fertilize the soil for a better crop. In summer season it tends to bloom faster and produce flowers and seeds(called as bloting). During autumn, winter and spring, however, coriander stays nicely leafy for a number of months. While harvesting you can snip of the leaves and more leaves will grow. You can also pluck the plant along with the roots.
