Grows best in well cultivated soil in a sunny position. Cilantro is a short lived plant and is very prone to bolting – so having seeds started at different times to ensure a crop all summer long is best. When flower heads appear cut them off to extend the life of the plant.

Plant in a location that enjoys partial sun and remember to water moderately. Asian is generally regarded as a hardy plant, so this plant will survive close to or on freezing temperatures. USDA Hardiness Zone 3 to 11 are typically the USDA Hardiness Zones that are appropriate for this plant (although this can vary based on your microclimate). Asian needs a loamy soil with a ph of 4.9 to 8.2 (moderately acidic soil to weakly alkaline soil).

Growing Asian from seed

This plant is best left not transplanted, so sow directly into soil outdoors after the last frost, or start indoors in peat pellets that can be directly planted without disturbing the roots.

Try to aim for a seed spacing of at least 5.85 inches (15.0 cm) and sow at a depth of around 0.23 inches (0.6 cm). For optimal germination, soil temperature should be a minimum of 21°C / 70°F.
