Coriander - approx 150 seeds
For lovers of hot spicy food, coriander is an essential ingredient for adding to curries, salsa and a host of hot spicy dishes as well as injecting life into a salad. Easy to grow and ready to harvest in only 6 weeks from sowing. Height: 60cm (24”). Spread: 25cm (10”).
Sow outdoors. Before sowing, prepare the ground by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones. Make shallow channels (drills) in the soil 30cm (12") apart. Sow thinly, 1cm (1/2") deep in the drills. Lightly cover the seeds with soil.
Thin out the plants to about 23-30cm (9-12") when the seedlings are large enough to handle.
Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Keep the plants cool and moist to prevent them from running to seed.
