8. Coriander

Planted in the spring, coriander quickly flowers and goes to seed. You can try and delay this (by keeping it well watered and fed, growing it in a more shady space, and cutting the leaves regularly), but it will happen eventually, whatever you do. Don’t worry: the flowers are magnets for hoverflies (whose larvae eat aphids) and the green seeds are delicious.

August through to September is the best time to sow coriander, when it is much less prone to bolt. You’ll get leaves throughout the late autumn, the plants will survive most winters, and it’ll grow back strong and lush in the spring.

Garden novices, this is good news for you. Generally, the more you trim them, the more flavorful and abundant the plants become. Frequent cutting will also encourage new leaf growth. Don't forget that herbs flourish super quickly, so you’re going to want to make sure to snip them early, before they start to flower.

There are so many easy ways to save herbs, so there’s no need to throw any away. You can puree basil, for instance, and freeze it in ice-cube trays for future use. And you can dry thyme, rosemary and sage so you can sprinkle them onto dishes all year round. (Quick tip on the best way to dry herbs: After cleaning them, put them between paper towels and keep out of light to retain color and flavor.)
