Sowing and Growing
The way to successfully continue cilantro’s growth is to sow seeds continuously in the spring and fall. This plant grows best in full sun, yet overheating causes the plant to bolt. Water young plants consistently for best growth. Avoid overwatering established plants. Germination takes 2 to 3 weeks and produces rapid leaf growth.
Cut back the cilantro frequently for controlled and continuous growth. This plant can be harvested 4 to 5 weeks from the time the seeds are planted. Letting some plants set seed and drop on their own will give you plants for next season. For storage, cut the mature seed heads and store in a dry container, such as a paper bag.
