refreshing, feather-like leaf garden herb.

Coriander... Cilantro - is a herb known by a couple of names but one distinct flavour. A short-lived but well-appreciated herb (by most!), Coriander is easy to grow and delivers on flavour, which makes up for its short drop into the party.

why it's special:

  • Great for your garden health, repelling aphids and other garden pests.
  • Grows fast in containers and you can be enjoying fresh herbs.
  • Resistant to most garden diseases, so lots of healthy leaves.
