Cilantro is a great herb for containers or a window sill herb garden. You can of course also grow coriander in the ground. Just remember that is is a short lived culinary herb that needs to seeded in regular intervals to have an ongoing supply! But because it is so easy to grow this it not a big deal.
A coriander seed is technically a fruit containing two seeds in it. When split, it increases the germination rate. Simply sow the split coriander seeds in a row and cover the seeds with soil. Water them and wait. It starts germinating somewhere between 5-7 days and if you place them in a spot where they get adequate sunlight they are ready to be harvested in another 10 days.These leaves help in digestion, prevents flatulence and protects against urinary tract infections.
