Growing cilantro from seeds is fast. You’ll want to re-plant every 30 days.
From our favorite organic grower in Toronto Canada, Laura Watt brings cilantro seeds – an annual native to southern Europe, also known as coriander.
Cilantro seeds were brought to Britain by the Romans, and has been cultivated as an aromatic spice since ancient times. Growing to 1 to 2-feet, it carries delicate umbels of flowers that are pale mauve/white. The entire plant is edible.
Since cilantro plants grow and flower fast, plan to sow seeds every few weeks to extend the harvest season. Seeds can be sown year round in mild winter climates.
100 Certified organic seeds per pack.
Planting instructions: Direct seed 1/2-inch deep , spaced 1-inch apart in rich, well-drained soil. Firm soil over seeds. Thin to 8-inch apart when 3-inches tall. Best to direct sow as cilantro does not transplant well. 100 days. Full sun.
