Growing Coriander + Make Your Own Coriander Seed Packets!

This is last years coriander crop!
On Friday I planted my summer batch of coriander seeds, depends on where you live, here in the South West of Western Auistralia, best time to plant is summer and spring. Coriander can be quite expensive buying it fresh in the shops for such a tiny bunch, when its so easy to grow your own, even if space is limited grow in a pot on your balcony. Here is the really great tip to save you money and supply all your friends and family with coriander. I buy my seeds in bulk for $1.50 for 250 grams, then you can make up little packets of seeds and give to family and friends, send them in a card for a birthday or thank you gift, this can also be done with lots of other seeds. You can also buy little packets of seeds from your supermarket spice section. After growing your coriander let some go to seed for the next growing season.


  1. Hi Sherrie,

    where do you buy the seeds from - that is a really cheap price.

  2. I've never grew coriander but I sure do like the seasoning.

    Coffee is on.

  3. Hi Ronnie,I'm not sure where you are located. I purchase them from www.2brothersfoods.com
    they have a mail order...where I live in Western Australia the postage is only $3.50 I usually place an order for lots of their other products.
    or as I said you can buy a packet from the spice section from your supermarket and leave some to go to seed & you'll have plenty to grow each season...

  4. This is a great idea as always Sherrie. I like the idea of sending the little seed envelopes in cards.

  5. I always thought coriander was hard to grow so have avoided it (I have only a light green thumb). I might have to try it next Summer. Great frugal tip! x
