Cilantro: A true garden necessity! Easy to grow with countless uses from every stage of the plant.
To Plant: Place starts 4-6” apart in full sun to part shade.
To Harvest: Pick leaves as needed. When the plant starts to bolt (i.e. flower), you can still eat the lacier leaves that appear (and flowers!). Flowers are GREAT for beneficial pollinators, so leave the cilantro as long as you can! Soon you’ll see fresh green seed heads that eventually turn papery brown–time to harvest your own coriander!
