How to Grow Coriander
Coriander or Asian parsley enjoys a sunny position but appreciates a little shade during the hottest part of the day. Coriander is best grown from seed directly into the soil. Germination of coriander takes up to 3 weeks. Water them in dry periods and ensure the soil never dries out. Coriander does well in containers and can be grown on a sunny windowsill or balcony. The container must be quite deep as coriander has a long taproot.
Harvest the Coriander leaves when the plant is big and robust enough. Cut each leaf off the stem or snip whole stems if necessary. Both the leaves and the stalks can be used. Coriander is a tasty herb to grow, if you re-sow seeds every three weeks you can have lush coriander leaves throughout the summer to add to salads and Thai dishes.
The Thai cuisine has the reputation of being one of the best cuisines in the world. This is characterized in particular by their fresh, healthy ingredients, fresh herbs, gentle preparation and not least by their sharpness. The Thais love the food spicy. The term „sharp“ is really to be taken seriously in its meaning. Thai dishes are often seasoned with chili and curries and flavored with ginger and spices, but most important is the harmony of the cooking ingredients.
