The Q&A Archives: Where Should I Grow Coriander ? I

Question: Where would be the best place to grow Coriander in my garden? I live in zone 7, and the summers can get very HOT! Is this best grown in shade, part shade or full sun? Also, how tall does it get when left to seed?

Answer: Coriander is a cool-season herb, and does best where summers are cool, or in fall or spring plantings where winters are mild. It will bolt and go to seed when temperatures get too warm, but it still needs at least 6 hours of sun per day. It can get about 12-18 inches tall with flower stalks.
