Product Description

Synonymous with Indian cuisine, Coriander is an aromatic herb with a distinctive citrus taste. Chop leaves and stalks with tomato and chilli for a marvellous Mexican salsa or sprinkle leaves over carrots for that extra flavour.

Coriander is a delicate and sensitive plant and should ideally be used soon after purchase. Unlike other herbs Coriander should ideally be used once and then discarded as success with growing on can be limited so don't be disappointed if it doesn't' t last as long as other herbs.

Serving Suggestion
Coriander and Carrots - Mix roughly chopped fresh coriander with olive oil and lemon juice. Pour over freshly boiled carrots and serve.
Salsa - Combine a large handful of fresh coriander, tomatoes, red onion, garlic, mild chilli to taste, lime juice and salt and pepper. Roughly chop or blitz in a blender for a few seconds. Serve immediately.

Growing herbs are 'cut as you need', harvest just above leaf growth to encourage the plant to re-grow.

Watering the herbs from the bottom is the key to keeping them healthy and to prolonging their life. Your herbs have always been watered from below so by keeping to this regime you will extend the life of the plant. Remove the herb pots from their sleeves and place the pots on a saucer. By placing water at the bottom of the tray you can always see how much water your plants have taken up.  As most herbs originate from hot countries they like to be kept on the dry side. The more heat and light they are exposed to, the more frequently they will need watering. Generally water little and often and never keep your plant in standing water.

This coriander was dead on arrival

Could it be that Ocado are transporting the coriander in conditions that are far too cold so by the time the customer gets it, it is no longer a growing coriander but a dying coriander?

died within 2 days

Defeats the purpose of buying a growing pot! Save your money and buy a bunch instead.

Not the best

I've bought three of these now. They taste good but basically, they don't last more than a couple of days and are straggly from day one. I've bought coriander plants from other sources that have lasted better and longer. I've stopped buying them now and buy cut coriander. Such a shame, as I love the other growing herbs and the pot growing system.

AVOID.

The whole point of buying a growing pot is to use some but allow it to grow to take more as needed, however when I received the plant it came with a sticker telling me to use it within two days. The sticker was right - within a couple of days it was no longer usable. I find it a little underhand that the website doesn't tell you it all needs to be used up right away, and you only find out once you receive it. The thyme plant I bought at the same time still looks as good as when I bought it a week ago, I'm not sure why the coriander is so problematic.
