Question: How can I get coriander to flourish in my garden?

Answer: Seeds should be sown in the garden while it is still cool but past the danger of a hard frost. Thin the seedlings so that they aren’t too crowded, about six inches apart. The young leaves offer the best flavor. Like most herbs, coriander doesn’t like a lot of fertilizer or wet feet. If you are buying seedlings rather than seeds, the plants may be too old and won’t enjoy being transplanted. Your luck may improve if you try starting your own plants from seeds right in the garden where the plants will grow. Coriander will often self-seed the second year.
