The similarity between Mediterranean coriander and Vietnamese coriander is striking. However, there is a fundamental difference. Whereas true coriander, as an annual umbellifer, is not suitable for perennial cultivation, Vietnamese coriander, as a knotweed, offers aromatic herbal enjoyment over several years. This is how overwintering succeeds:
- in autumn, the thermometer falls below 10 degrees, Vietnamese coriander put away
- place on a sunny windowsill at 18 to 23 degrees Celsius
- water with restraint and fertilize organically every 2 months
Tips & Tricks
The vitality of the Asian herb plant is significantly strengthened if it is overwintered in a cool and dark place at 5-10 degrees Celsius. In this case, cut the coriander back to one pair of leaves per shoot before putting it away. Water the plant only enough so that it does not dry out. Until next spring, do not apply fertilizer.
