KEEP PLANT­ING CO­RIAN­DER

Matamata Chronicle - - Gardening -

I’ve been in love with co­rian­der for a while and it’s by far my favourite herb. Luck­ily, I can grow it year­round in my Auck­land gar­den, how­ever that doesn’t mean I al­ways have it on hand. Co­rian­der is a rel­a­tively fast-grow­ing plant, so in or­der to have a con­stant sup­ply, you need to be sow­ing seeds ev­ery month or so. Sow seeds di­rect (co­rian­der has a del­i­cate tap­root that doesn’t trans­plant well) into a sunny part of the gar­den – or grow in con­tain­ers or un­der cover. Thin to 5cm apart once es­tab­lished and ex­pect to start har­vest­ing leaves from 40 days.
