Post  tabletopper on 8/28/2011, 8:29 pm

I have not had good luck with Cilantro........I would like to grow lots of it ....for my Daughters business in Utah....I will be there this winter......

I read that the seeds should be planted 3 inches apart.....so wouldnt that make it 16 per sq? they like to be crowded...but doesnt like the noon day sun......I plan to have a greenhouse and plant herbs for her business.....I supplied her with lots of Basil last summer............Ruth

I looked up "How to grow Cilantro from seeds" on ehow and they say thin to 6" apart. Another site said if growing for seed and not leaves they need more space. What is the thin to spacing on the seed packet?

At http://sunset.com there is an interesting article titled "a better way to grow Cilantro" this just might be the best way to meet your goal. I would just do it in the box rather than in a container. Still check it out and let me know what you think. I'm going to try it in my fall garden.

Ruth, I agree with you that cilantro likes to be crowded. I planted them very close and it did just fine. Happy gardening!

Cilantro bolts FAST in the heat. I grew it summer and winter this year and the winter had a milder flaver, but lasted a long time. The summer was strong tasting and I pinched back a lot but it did want to bolt daily.

Crowding did not seem to bother it at all.

dont know how the grocery stores sell such nice handfuls in a bunch.......



Shannon 1......the Burpee pkg sez thin to stand 12" apart.......next time I plant them outside I will try a cage a la Mel.....and cover the plastic mesh for the noonday sun....like I read they dont like....1 per sq would not be good for growing for a business....if you try it in Florida...let me know how the results.....so this winter I will try growing it under lights inside.....since I will be staying in Utah for the winter.........tnx Ruth

I am going to do the "better way" this fall for sure and I will let you know. I have recently started sprouting broccoli (for the sprouts) indoors and won a micro greens set up at an ag.center event earlier this year. The "better way" sounds alot like a cross between micro greens and cut and come again. Every one wants to get their hands on my celantroCilantro.... 889526 my Mom, my dear neighbor, friends, the cook at my favorite diner. I feel like I need to grow enough for an army.

I've grown cilantro twice (better success in a pot) but the second year in the SFG was not as good. I'm sure it was my fault though. I pretty much neglected it, it was hard to get to. Anyway, I love the smell of it but I have no idea what to make with it. (don't laugh) I know I should google some recipies but I've been lazy. If I had a good crop I'm sure I would. Okay - I'll commit to next time.

That's a very helpful article, Shannon. Here's a direct link: A Better Way to Grow Cilantro. I'm going to give this method a try, since cilantro is on my fall garden plan. I tried to grow some in the spring, but it bolted super fast in our hot weather. This looks like a good fix for that problem.

Checked out the Sunset mag articale........will try that way also.....but the Burpee seed pkg sez.....no excitement for 14-21 days so thats a differnce...planting every 2 weeks sounds good for always having Cilantro..and adding a cage with mesh on the top a la Mel....for the noon day sun.....if plants outdoors....maybe if indoors no lite for a few hours....

Wish I knew how the commeriial guys do it........I need to learn....as my daughter and son in law has a business that sells ready made dinners to cook at home in Sandy, Utah and the fresh herbs are really expensive there.

The seeds are very hard.....round.....tried sandpapering the outside and they would flip out of my grip onto the floor....thats not good....than a article I read said soak seeds ...24 hours....before planting...so will keep on trying....

So tnx Cilantro Buddies....let me know your results........Ruth
