Cold weather coriander

WHILE you wake up on a shivering morning wishing for summer, outside some plants are thriving despite the icy cold.

Coriander is one herb which thrives in winter and seeds like crazy, without going to seed as it so often does in summer.

While I have planted out some pots in a sunny area of my deck, which is handy for when i need a small amount when cooking, I've also allowed one garden bed with coriander to self-seed.

Now it's popping up like crazy - just as well as I'm enjoying using the tasty herb as a key ingredient in soups, casseroles and even breads.

Here's a recipe for coriander chilli chicken I'm going to give a whirl next weekend.
