Growing Cilantro in Pots
Generally grown as a culinary herb, cilantro is a flavorful plant that’s essential as a garnish in both Mediterranean, Mexican, and Hispanic cooking. Its seeds, known as coriander, are also frequently used in Middle Eastern, Indian, and Asian cooking as a seasoning. We recommend growing cilantro for any fall garden, as it adds a touch of fresh flavor to nearly any dish!
