Coriandrum sativum (Coriander). Common names for this herb include Cilantro, Chinese Cilantro, Coriander and Chinese parsley.

Coriander is a member of the parsley family, it is a very popular plant widely cultivated as a spice and herb. Coriander, is featured in a wide variety of cuisines including Asian, Latin, and Indian dishes, as well as European cuisine.

It is green, leafy and strong-smelling with a fresh, citrus taste that makes it an invaluable garnish and flavour enhancer. Both the fresh leaves and stalks are edible, so it’s great to add them to your salads. Coriander has a unique pungent taste to it, similar to a lemon/lime taste, and to a certain percentage of the population, it tastes soapy. It is packed with health benefits too, so why not add them to your cooking.  For maximum flavour, it is best added to dishes just before serving.

 Coriander is native to regions spanning from Southern Europe and Northern Africa to Southwestern Asia. It is a soft plant that is easy to grow and maintain. They can grow up to 50 cm (20 in) tall. The plant produces a slender, hollow stem 30 to 60 millimetres (1 to 2.5 inches) high with bipinnate leaves and small flowers. The upper leaves of the plant are feathery whereas the lower leaves are roundish and lobed. 



Pot sizes explained

At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
