Coriander is a versatile herb, the seeds are crushed and used in curries whilst the leaves are also good in Indian dishes, salads or as an interesting alternative to parsley.
Pick leaves regularly if you wish to stop plants running to seed.
If you want your seeds to germinate quickly you can put down a horticultural fleece over the soil – this helps retain the heat in the soil.

Sow seed thinly in pre-watered shallow rows, and cover with a little soil. Allow about 30cm (12in) between rows. Seedlings do not normally need thinning. Keep soil moist until seedlings are established.
