Ahhh thanks Chris for putting this recent link to coriander on your site! A few years back I tried to grow coriander in pots and had no real luck. It was tedious to care for and went to seed far too soon. I had heard of this from others and also. Determined to press on, last September I planted it in clumps (around 20 seeds each) straight into my vegie patch (in a spot which is mulched and in morning sun) and successfully grow loads of it, planting it twice per year in late summer and late winter. Letting it go to seed in summer allows us to eat it throughout its life cycle as a fresh herb from its leaves, a spice from its seed and we can use the root in curries. Like other leaf crops, you can pick it gradually as you need it instead of harvesting the whole plant at once.
