Herb Seeds - Coriander

A dual purpose annual herb grown for its seeds or fresh young leaves. The seeds are delicious in cakes and when crushed, add an orangey flavour to meat dishes. The young leaves are often called 'Cilantro' and are great finely chopped to give dishes a Latin touch. A decorative herb for the border, thanks to its finely cut foliage.

Sow March to August, at 4 week intervals, 1cm deep in rows 30cm apart in ordinary garden soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Thin out the seedlings to 13cm apart.

These herbs prefer full sun and ordinary garden soil. Harvest the young green leaves sparingly once the seedlings are 15cm tall and for seed, pull off the seed heads when they become brown but don't leave them too long on the plant or they will disperse themselves. An excellent herb for slightly shaded areas. Grows to a height of 90cm.

Ideal for summer and autumn cultivation. Endive Indivia Mixed contains Endive Romanesca da Taglio, Fijne Krul Geel (Sempre Bianca), Pancalieri a Costa Bianca, Riccia a Cuore d'Oro.

Sowing months: Mar-Aug
Position: Full sun

Soil must be well prepared in a sunny, open site. Sow seeds into peat pots/modules from March to July and transplanted when plants are 10-15cm tall, at 30cm square spacing. Alternatively seeds can be sown directly into very finely prepared soil, in rows about 13mm deep allowing 30cm between rows. Cover the seeds lightly with soil. Thin to 30cm apart in the row. Can also be sown more thickly as 'salad leaves' from March to August. Water after sowing directly or transplanting and keep plants moist at all times.

Harvesting of mature hearts can commence after about 80 days from sowing. To reduce the bitter flavour the plants should be blanched in succession. Once blanched the hearts will deteriorate in quality, so blanching should be carried out to fit in with harvesting requirements. Blanching is achieved by tying up the lower leaves to cover the plants or by placing a 25cm size pot over the plants and blocking the drainage hole to exclude light.
