Space rows about 12 inches asunder.

The large leaves can be cut individually from the plants. For the smaller leaves, cut them off 1-½ to 2 inches above the crown.
You can also remove the entire plant at one time; however, you will not be able to keep on harvesting for the residue of the farming season.
To store coriander seeds, cut off the seed heads when the plant begins to turn brown and set them in a paper bag. You can then store the seeds in sealed containers.

To dry them, hang the plant in a warm position until fully dried, then put in the leaves in a resealable bag or container.
