the only way to prevent bolt is to pinch them back, but that only works for a little while. those suckers are gonna bolt to seed when it's time, and the weather is right. floating row cover will help slow it down too by blocking direct sun.

Growing cilantro in partial shade will somewhat retard the tendency to bloom (bolt), as will the above suggestion to pinch out the growing tip on the central stem that develops. Age, too, is a factor in the bloom cycle, so it will occur in spite of efforts.

Sequential planting is the more sure way of maintaining a supply.

TNX for the tips!

After the bolting I use the sequential Stop and Shop method
