How To Sow Coriander Seed For Growing On The Windowsill
Grow Coriander on a sunny windowsill if you enjoy Asian or Mexican food
Coriander leaf is an essential herb if you enjoy Asian and Mexican food. It is much cheaper to grow your own than buying from the supermarket and it is worth growing if you are short of space.
You will need:
- seed trays
- seed compost & vermiculite
- something which holds water to stand the tray or pots in
Fill the tray with John Innes Seed Compost, tap the tray on the bench to level the compost.
Sprinkle the seed thinly over the surface and cover with a thin layer of vermiculite; this insulates the seed from any temperature fluctuations.
Stand the tray in water for 15 - 20 minutes until damp and place on a sunny windowsill or in the greenhouse.
Keep just damp.
Sow at 4 week intervals and you will have a crop all summer.
Don't grow them somewhere too hot otherwise they will bolt; if growing outside they will perform better if they are out of the midday sun.
