: : Hello.I need help and can't find any! I live in Wisconsin and we are trying to grow cilantro from the 3" seed plants bought from a nursery. Within 1 week it was 2 feet tall. I now understand it went to seed and am planning on harvesting the seeds. But, can I just cut the plant to the ground and will it grow again? Thanks for any help!
coriander can be a problem, alw3ays wanting to go to seed. first, pick one of the varieties that are bred for leaf-production, rather than the seeds. second, direct sow them outside, you'll delay your harvest a bit, but then there's no hardening-off, transplanting shock,problems of starting them indoors. make it easy on yourself, this is supposed to be enjoyable. goodluck,and happy salsa-ing
