Coriander seeds don't make great salsa or guacamole. I want the leaves.

Me three. I'd love to be able to step outside and pick a few leaves as needed.

Are you sure about that?


I just meant that it wasn't a complete waste if they did bolt. I planted some one year and had volunteer cilantro the next two years.

Yes, I have grown it with success. It is in a pot, which is mostly in the shade. Maybe it's the weather that we have? Don't know but it works.

Are you in Portland, Oregon, or Portland, Maine? Either way, the average temperatures in those places are 15 to 20 degrees lower than in my area. Cilantro doesn't last long during the spring and summer here.

Now, other herbs do great Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme Genovese basil, Thai basil, oregano, curry, mint and bay laurel are all looking beautiful.

I have a volunteer fennel plant (the one used for seeds, not the bulb) that came up under the Japanese maple that is really reaching for the sun through the foliage. Dill is challenge for me, too, though.

Oregon. Zone 6. Didn't grow it this year as it has been WAY too HOT. We've had more days over 90+ than ever so the tomatoes did well! They love the heat. The basil is doing better than the parsley. I keep them out of direct sun and that seems to keep them going.

I just wash it and throw it in a ziplock

Use the seeds to grow more cilantro in the fall or spring.

I have kept arugula going for years doing this.

The problem is that I have lots of tomatoes and tomatillos right now and I want to make salsa. I'll have to try freezing it.
