Cilantro is probably my favorite smell in the world. Yes, I could probably happily clutch this jar of cilantro to my side all day long. Cilantro is an easy to grow herb - though it generally does better during the cooler months. It's possible to keep sowing cilantro for use throughout the year, just find a spot that has some shade so it can stay lush and fresh during the hottest summer months. Right under the asparagus, where tall ferns tend to cast some shade, is the best spot in my garden. What are your tips for growing cilantro?
