Cucumbers and cilantro or other herbs?

I have been given a beautiful cilantro(coriander)plant. I am thinking about planting it where I had planned to put cucumbers. Are they compatible? What other herbs are compatible with cucumbers? I would like to plant basil, if that's a good match.

RE: Cucumbers and cilantro or other herbs?

Will you be trellising your cucumbers or will they crawl on the ground? Cukes are heavy feeders, so planting them with light feeders makes sense. I would encourage you to experiment with your combo and have fun!
This year I plan to trellis my cukes over my mesclun as shade. And I'll include marigolds, red clover, sage... and who knows what else?

I will have them in the circular tomato cages. Right now the cilantro is not handling the full sun and heat, so it may not be there when I plant the cucumbers. I will keep in my to use light feeders with them.
