Can also be used as an addition to your home-brew insect repellent.

    Not a common herb in South Africa. However, on the European continent a summer meal would not be complete without a handful of chervil to throw into a meal. It has a subtle parsley/aniseed flavour and once you have tasted it you will be hooked. Can take a bit of frost but a deep heavy frost will see you planting again next year.
    Companion plants: Dill, coriander, carrots and radish.

  • Herb Coriander Cilantro

    R22.00

    (Coriandrum sativum)

    This is a variety named Cilantro, best used as a herb for leaves only. In that role it is exceptional as it produces a mass of lovely flavoured leaves. Great for fresh eating and for just chucking into the pot just before you serve. If you are looking for a Spice Coriander, rather look at the White coriander as it is much better suited for spice production.
    Companion plants: Asparagus, chervil and spinach.
    Planting beans or peas near cilantro will benefit your cilantro plant.
