Direct sow in succession every 2 weeks from about a month before last frost until early fall. Succession sowing is all important with cilantro; it bolts after only a couple weeks of harvest. Not picky about soil. Leaves grow low to the ground and purple-hued in cold weather yet remain tasty. Harvest confidently--even greedily--lest plants bolt before you get your share.
