    Coriander seeds like to be wet, so can be soaked in water before hand if desired
    Sprinkle seeds generously in desired area
    Coriander seeds do not need to be sown in rows or cells
    Sprinkle a thin layer of compost over the top of the seeds so they are covered
    Pat down the soil to lightly firm it down
    If using a lot of coriander in cooking, sow sequential batches every month for a continuous harvest
    Leaves can be harvested as soon as the plant is 6 inches or taller
