Sowing: Cilantro is a cool weather plant and many gardeners have the best success with coriander by planting it any time from September through February. It is best to directly sow this plant, as it does not transplant well. It can also be planted as soon as possible in the spring, or after the heat of summer as a fall crop. Plant the seeds deep in soil with good drainage. Germination usually takes 2-3 weeks. For a continuous harvest, plant a new crop every 2-3 weeks.
