Home gardening-Coriander

This 2021 summer I experimented on my home gardening. I really enjoyed the process starting with seed plantation till the vegie was fully grown! Each day was filled with curiosity, learning, caring about the baby plant. Each day trying to change the position of the plant- to give it more or less sunlight or to keep feeding the baby plant with water. This baby plant has taught me so much; gave me so much of happiness without expecting anything in return. 🙂

Starting with this 1st baby plant- Coriander.

Sowing the seeds

How did I plant it?

As you sow, so shall you reap! I took a plastic container and drilled some holes at the bottom to let excess water go out. Fill it half with soil. Moist the soil with water. Add coriander seeds (crush into halves or sow direct) and spread on soil in such a way that they don’t overlap each other. Cover the seeds with soil (2-3cm). Sprinkle water gently.

Baby plants are noticeable

Secure good growth?

Patience is the key.

Make sure soil stays moist.

Enough sunlight should reach the soil. Excess might damage the baby plants.

In few days you can see baby plants growing.

Coriander is almost ready for plucking

Freshly plucked!

This freshly plucked coriander I used in a very famous Indian (Maharashtrian) recipe- Coriander cutlets (Kothimbir vadi).

So I hope you find some inspiration to grow coriander in your garden.
