Anyone any tips on growing it?Every single time I try it starts off OK then it eventually grows a long shoot with pretty frond like things on and dies!!!As you can see I am no plant expert.I can do parsley,chives,thyme,rosemary,basil but my coriander I just cannot get to grow!!What am I doing wrong??

OH, I hope you get an answer as mine does exactly the same!

that's what it does - it's a very short-lived plant and you have to harvest it at just the right time

I think you have to cut off the frondy shoot as soon as it appears - this should prolong the life of the plant
