Cilantro help

valeriehaz(5b OH)July 14, 2011

My cilantro was doing great until recently. I have 2 plants (in the same big pot) and one has bolted the corriander seeds are green. The other plant, which did not bolt, I was using for recipes looks terrible. It is turning yellow and not producing leaves. Is there anything I can do to save it?

My best advice, sow more coriander seed and start new plants.

It's one of those plants that you have to sow steadily to get a constant supply, since they're so short-lived.

Set aside 8 square feet for cilantro and plant the first square in week 1, the second square in week 2, and so on. By the time you get to square 8 (or sooner), the first square will be ready to harvest and re-plant.
