The Q&A Archives: cilantro

Question: I have planted cilantro for two years now but I cant get it to grow like parsley it looks feathery, that is the only way I can explain it what am I doing wrong?

Answer: Carrie,

Plant cilantro in the fall. It will grow through the winter with nice parsley looking foliage. When the days begin to get longer in spring it "bolts" or sends up a bloom stalk and then the "feathery" foliage as you described it is produced.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
