Coriander prefers a rich, well-drained soil and full sun exposure. As it does not tolerate transplantation well, it is best to sow it directly in the garden at a depth of ½ inch and a distance of 12 inches. You can sow seeds every 2 weeks to ensure a continuous harvest. It doesn't like being in a pot much since it has a long taproot, so it's preferable to plant it directly in the ground.
Coriander is hardy, meaning it can easily survive frost, and several consecutive days with temperatures over 24°C (75°F) will cause it to flower but make its leaves bitter. You can try delaying flowering by applying mulch, which will help the roots retain their freshness.
Coriander leaves are edible, but it is more popularly grown for its seeds. As soon as the seeds turn beige, remove them and let them dry completely for proper preservation.
