I live in south Florida and have tried twice to grow my cilantro from seed. Both times the cilantro has popped up and when about 6-8 inches in height, it dies off. Is it too hot here in south Florida for my cilantro (not to mention the rest of my garden) in the summer? I thought cilantro liked it warm, but I only have sucess with plants already started and planted over the winter. My garden is a real challenge with the extreme heat we have here. HELP!
Cilantro does not like the heat, it has a tendency to bolt when temps go above 75 degrees, however, you can still grow in indoors. :) Please see this article for tips on how to do that:
It's certainly worth the time and effort, fresh cilantro is wonderful!
