{how to plant} 
Start sowing cilantro as soon as the ground can be worked. Seeds should be planted about 1/4 inch deep. Spring and fall are the best times to grow cilantro, since the heat of the summer sun will speed up the process and your plants will bolt to seed quickly. The soil should be well drained and moist for optimum growth. Plant seeds a few inches apart in an area of your garden that gets both sun and shade, preferably morning sun and afternoon shade. Planting them close together will give your cilantro plants a bit of extra shade to keep the roots cooler, longer. 

Cilantro plants grow and go to seed very quickly, so you'll want to plant them continuously throughout the growing season; every three weeks or so to maintain your crop. Once the roots consistently reach 75 degrees, the plant will start to seed.
