Coriander/Cilantro

Also known as Chinese Parsley, Coriander and Cilantro refer to the same species: Coriandrum sativum, a member of the Parsley family. Coriander typically refers to the seeds and Cilantro typically refers to the leaves and stems. Immensely popular in Mexican, Thai and Indian cuisines, its fresh, somewhat pungent flavor brings alive salsa, cold Cucumber soup, bruschetta, ceviche and summer grill marinades. Or purée it with roasted red Bell Peppers, chunks of ripe avocado, mayonnaise, lime juice, lime zest and herbs for a colorful, zesty sandwich spread or a crudité dip. It prefers to be direct-sown into the garden after the last spring frost date in moderately fertile soil. Keep evenly moist and harvest regularly with scissors. For Coriander seeds, allow the plants to flower and go to seed. When the seeds just begin to brown, cut the stems and place them in a paper bag to dry. Once the seeds are completely dry, separate them from the stems and store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry spot. Bee friendly. Deer resistant. Height: 18" to 24". (OP.) Average seed life: 1 year.

Herbs may be either direct-sown outdoors after the threat of frost has passed, or started indoors for transplanting or container gardening. Herbs require moderately rich, well-draining soil with at least 5 hours of bright sunlight. To start indoors: sow lightly in sterilized seed mix, lightly moisten and cover with plastic wrap until germination takes place. Do not water again until sprouts emerge. Remove plastic wrap once sprouted. Transplant outdoors when the threat of frost has passed. Some perennials like Lavender, Catnip or Savory prefer to be started indoors. Others such as Chives, Sage or Fennel prefer to be direct-sown outside once the soil has warmed. Most herbs dislike chemicals or over-fertilization. Feed lightly with kelp or fish emulsion once seedlings are well established. Keep lightly moist: never wet. Pinch back the plants to avoid flowering and to encourage leaf production.
