Step by Step How to Grow Cilantro from Seed!
# 1 | Prior to planting your cilantro seeds, you'll need to prepare them so they will be able to germinate. Coriander seeds are actually two smaller seeds encased in a husk. Gently crush the husk covering the seeds by pressing the two seeds together. Afterwards soak your cilantro seeds in water for 24 to 48 hours.
#2 | Remove your cilantro seeds from the soaking water and allow them to dry for 6-12 hours prior to planting.
#3 | Plant your cilantro seeds 1/4 of an inch deep, and 3-4 inches apart. dig holes 3 to 4. Keep the soil evenly moist at all times.
#3 | Plant your cilantro in full sun. Cilantro grows best in crowded conditions because the plant’s leaves help to shade the roots and prevent the plant from bolting.
