If India had a national herb, it would be coriander. Put it in salads or curries as a garnish, in sandwiches as chutney, or even snacks to enhance the flavor, there is nothing better than coriander. Famous across the globe as cilantro, it forms an integral part of several world cuisines too. It is also one of the quickest and easiest to grow herbs.

Note: Used as seeds only and not for consumption. Seeds to be sown before the expiry date.

Planting:

  • Fill a shallow wide container with drainage holes and a minimum depth of 5 inches and fill it with a growing mix.
  • Coriander can be sown in any season but it needs to be protected from direct rain.
  • Before sowing, rub the seeds in between the palms of your hands to split them open and sprinkle uniformly on the soil surface and cover with a light layer of soil.
  • Water the seedbed immediately after sowing with a light shower using a watering can so as not to dislodge any seeds.
  • Keep the growing medium moist at all times by watering/misting it daily.
  • The soil bed or container needs to be protected from rain and direct harsh sunlight at all times for good growth.
  • Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium

Special Pride Care:

  • The coriander seeds will start germinating 6 – 8 days after sowing and baby coriander plants will be visible in 10-15 days.
  • Give your coriander saplings partial sunlight of up to 4 hours in summers and full day of sunlight in winters.
  • Water every day either with a can or sprinkler system in outdoor spaces.
  • Your coriander should be good for harvesting after approximately 30 days from sowing.
  • Cut the plant 1 inch above the soil surface using a scissor and leave the root system, untouched for next harvesting. The same plant can be harvested 2-3 times every 20-25 days.
  • Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deep

Common Problems:

Why are my coriander seeds not germinating?

Unfavorable growing conditions like soil that is not well-drained, over or under-watering, very cold temperatures will all result in failure of germination. Also, do not forget to split the coriander seeds before sowing them. Splitting the seeds will help in germination.

Why are my coriander leaves turning yellow?

Insufficient sunlight, lack of nitrogen, under-watering, over-watering or a combination of these could be the reason behind the yellowing of your coriander leaves.

Coriander leaves are turning brown.

Excess watering and poorly drained soil can lead to the browning of coriander leaves. Make sure you do not over-water your coriander plant and use well-drained soil.
