Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
    Growing Instructions:

    Cilantro does not transplant well and seeds should be sown directly into the garden when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is passed. Soil temperature (not air temperature) should be warmer than 12°C (55°F) for seeds to germinate. Planting at a lower temperature will delay germination. Choose a location that receives 4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily. Space seeds and plant to the depth indicated below. Press seeds into the soil to ensure good contact and cover with 6 mm (1/4") of soil. After planting, water the seeds with a gentle mist or shower. A hard spray can wash soil away, dislodge seeds and clump them together. It is critical to keep the soil consistently moist, but not soggy during germination. Do not let the soil dry out, as young plants have underdeveloped roots and can quickly dehydrate, particularly in windy conditions.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Growing Suggestions:
  • Cilantro seeds can be started at any time for indoor use.
  • In hot weather, Cilantro is prone to bolting and go to seed. Bolting refers to premature seed or flower stalk production before the harvest of the vegetable and typically renders the crop unusable.
  • Remember to cut your cilantro leaves regularly. This will not only keep the plant healthy but also ensure that you are using the freshest leaves from this herb. Regular harvesting by cutting the older, outer leaves will encourage your cilantro to continue producing new leaves from the center of the plant. Additionally, the more you harvest your cilantro, the better chance you have of snipping off immature flower stalks. This will help delay any bolting.
  • Harvest seeds (Coriander) in late summer by cutting seed heads when ripe. Spread seed heads on trays to dry in the sun. Thresh by hand and store in jars. The seed odor dissipates in storage. Leaves are used as a garnish in salad/soup. Seed used in meat and seafood/condiment for bread/cookies/cake.
  • Cilantro seeds can be succession planted every 2 to 3 weeks until mid-July for a continuous supply of fresh cilantro. When one set of cilantro plants starts to bolt, you'll have another set of cilantro plants coming along behind it that will be ready to harvest.
