A herb that simply adores the sun, it grows very quickly during the summer months but struggles to survive in our cold British winters. This makes it an excellent and attractive choice for containers where, due to its fast-growing nature, a weekly liquid feed should keep it happy. During most winters it will survive in a cold greenhouse or cold frame. If you have neither and a nice big plant, place it in the most sheltered position you can find, fleece it if possible and take a couple of small cuttings which should root in a jar of water which should root indoor on a windowsill.
Vietnamese coriander is sometimes called Vietnamese mint – although it tastes like neither herb. In Asian cuisine the pungent aromatics leaves have their own local names and are used extensively in culinary dishes. It has a hot spicy flavour during the summer months, less so when the weather is cool and is added to dishes at the end of cooking to preserve its heat, such as with noodles, meat, vegetables and coconut milk.
