I grow a lot of cilantro. Usually it dies out in six to eight weeks. The winter was so mild here this year that one plant survived to spring. It's about 2 ft tall. The stem is quite thick. The leaves are excellent in taste. Is this common? Is there anything else I can do with this plant?

Welcome!

That happens sometimes. Its good you can still eat the cilantro. Enjoy it while you can as it will bolt and die this summer. Or, everyone is wrong and Cilantro is actually perennial. I like that idea. I have chart that has survived for years. I just cut the flower stalks off every year. The roots are the size of footballs!
