Cilantro/Coriander seeds organically grown . Coriander will grow in a wide range of conditions but thrives best in sunny locations on rich garden loam of limestone origin with good drainage. Excessive nitrogen may delay the ripening of the seed and reduce the yield unless the grown season is long.
The seed is planted as soon as the soil is warm enough for germination, but after danger of frost has passed. Always plant seeds directly in the garden bed. Sow seeds thinly, one inch deep in rows about 15 inches apart. Frequent and light cultivation to keep weeds under control is recommended and some hand weeding is usually necessary. Planting made early in May will usually bloom in about nine to ten weeks and mature seed early in August.
The herb has been shown to improve tummy troubles of all kinds, from indigestion to flatulence to diarrhea. Intriguing new studies suggest that Cilantro has anti-inflammatory effects. Since the pain of arthritis is cause by inflammation, a cup of Cilantro tea may help you. "Both Cilantro and Coriander have been shown to settle the stomach," says James A. Duke, Ph.D., a botanist retiree from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and author of The CRC Handbook of Medicinal Herbs.
Weak Coriander tea may be given to children under age 2 for colic. It's safe for infants and may relieve their pain and help you get some much-needed sleep. Cilantro and Coriander contain substances that kill certain bacteria and fungi.
