Coriander is a popular annual to 60cm tall, leaves used in cooking and salads. Once plants are established you can harvest the roots to add a taste of Thailand to stir fry's. If plants go to flower harvest the seeds which can be used to add flavour to baking.
How can I stop Coriander bolting?Coriander is prone to bolting but we can reduce the chances of it by ensure there is ample water and high nitrogen fertiliser (animal manure, chicken pellets, blood and bone etc) available to the plant. Also try planting the cooler periods such as autumn or very early spring and avoid growing during the middle of summer. If you have to grow during summer then ensure plants will get shade from 2pm onwards.
