When to plant cilantro

neptune24September 4, 2013

I've ordered some cilantro seeds for the fall, and I was wondering when I can start sowing them. Right now, our average high temps are in the upper 80s. Do I need to wait for them to drop to a specific value before I can sow the cilantro successfully? I don't want it to fall over, or start bolting. Thanks for any help.

early Spring and fall.
You can plant it now. By the time they have germinated and grown a bit, it should cool off in z8, GA. But have to keep it moist and maybe mulch with dry leaves ? until you see them germinating. Then removes the mulch.
Try a partly shaded area, instead of FULL sun.
