Similar to parsley, the fresh leaves, as well as the seeds, can be used. Coriander seeds slightly smell like citrus. The fresh leaves, whereas, have a very own flavor which is hard to describe. The best, most consistent, good-tasting variety and being so well suited to pot growth, is the variety you will find in many supermarkets. It has a tidy, upright habit, is very vigorous with sturdy stems but also good bolting resistance.
Sowing: Sown directly into the final growing position or a deep pot, keep moist. Seedlings do not transplant well. Thin young plants to 20cm. If flowers appear remove them immediately to encourage leaf growth.
