Plant description

coriander

Coriander is an annual herb, all parts of which are used in the kitchen. It also has beneficial medicinal qualities, as an antioxidant, an antibacterial and other uses. It also attracts beneficial insects to the garden. It is a feathery leafed plant with umbels of white flowers.

Coriander is best grown in cooler weather, as hot weather and drying out will cause it to bolt to seed. The first seed spike can be pruned out to prolong the foliage growth. It can be grown in the garden or in pots, and regular fertilising and watering will maximise production.

Coriander grows in the near East and southern Europe and northern Africa. It has been used for thousands of years. It was found in the a Neolithic cave settlement, Egyptian tombs, and was one of the first herbs to be taken to America by the first settlers.
