These seeds like to be slightly buried and often start off growing super slowly, however about a week and a half after planting they’ll begin to shoot up! Though these young leaves look mature, don’t pick them yet, the plant needs a little time to mature before you can start using it!
Harvesting; once your plants are about 10cm tall you can begin to harvest them! Pick the leaves and stems continually to promote new growth and dissuade bolting (The plant will begin to grow seeds if you don’t use it enough!)
Coriander compliments almost everything so don’t be afraid to try adding it to your favourite recipes! Next time try adding some to a homemade pesto or hamburger patties for a little extra flavour.

I love that the ideas behind Urban Plant Growers actually translates into doable growing for dummies like me! I have whatever the opposite of a green thumb is & even I can grow nice, healthy, edible plants this way!
I bought these seeds to plant in my Terra Garden, and they have just started to poke their heads up. Great quality.
coriander took a bit longer to grow, best grown when planted deeper in the smart soil as the plants grow stronger. Place in a warmer place in the room
Just kept on growing once it got to a certain size
