Tips for Planting and Growing Cilantro in your Garden
Hot temperatures really make cilantro grow fast, they need a lot of sun and warmer climates. Typically they can grow as fast as 3 weeks with the proper cultivation of the soil and growth tactics. Cultivating the soil with compost to a depth of 16-18 inches and giving it plenty of moisture will help with the growth as well. Then as the young plants are starting to grow, a great tip is to snip off the top of the stem where the flowering buds appear that way all of the growth remains focused on the leaves. Keep alert for when the plant has seeds because cilantro has a short life cycle and will soon after begin dying.
