Coriander Experiment – Day 1

I love fresh  coriander (aka cilantro in some parts of the world). Unfortunately, I have had the worst luck when it comes to growing my own.  Even the ones I buy from the supermarket inevitably end up looking like this:

 

Dead Coriander

Not one to give up too easily, today I decided to give it yet another go and went out and bought my I’ve-lost-count-th pot of coriander.  (I’m sure I’m not into double digits yet.)

You all are my witnesses.  If  I’m doing something wrong, please let me know.

  1. I hope it goes well for you this time! Looking forward to seeing how it goes.

    I have terrible luck with coriander too. My second last one lasted several months, never looking *much* better than that top photo, and then died. I tried again, and it shot up beautifully… and went straight to seed. Oh well, at least I have the means to try again!
