Originally from Italy, the Coriander plant (Coriandrum Sativum) is now a common worldwide culinary spice popular for seasoning meats. It can also be used for adding fragrance in soap or flavouring accessory in medicine or even tobacco.
Coriander belongs to the herb family Apiaceae and grows best when sown directly into well drained fertile soil, with light shade. Coriander grows in the UK during the summer season, from March to August. It is not a hardy plant and does not like the cold, so needs protection from frost to survive the winter.
