    Cilantro doesn't seem to last

    I grow cilantro in a pot on my windowsill for use in cooking. The seeds germinate very quickly, but the plants seem to die off after only a few weeks, so I have to keep planting new crops. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

    Cilantro is a very short lived plant when grown in warm conditions. You might find this helpful.

    [align=left]I too thought it was just me, so I pretty much gave up on trying to plant cilantro.* Guess I'll give it another try (especially the heat tolerant, Mexican, variety).[/align]

    Hi TN Gardener,

    People are often so relieved to know that it's the cilantro and not them, and then they're disappointed that it doesn't live longer.* Glad you iknow you'll try again.

    [align=left]Yep. I'll try again.* I guess I'll just plant several seeds at a time and plant them every week or so throughout the spring & summer.[/align]
