Cilantro (Citrus Mediterranea) is a Latin name meaning “planted leaf.” This aromatic perennial herb is one of the most flavorful and tasty herbs grown or raised for its beautiful green leaves. If you are a beginning gardener, it is wise to consider planting cilantro in a separate container from other plants in your garden. For best results, keep cilantro growing in a warm, sunny location. There are three ways to plant cilantro that will provide healthy blooms throughout the year.
The first way to plant growing herbs is to plant seeds directly into the pod. To achieve this, plant seeds in an individual cut of either a regular garden packet or your own garden soil. Before placing the seed in the pod, water the seed well.
The second way to plant growing herbs is to divide a plant into two separate pots. Use the largest pot to hold the cilantro seedling. Then, plant seedlings into smaller pots. Keep in mind that the larger plant will probably produce more leaves. When you divide a plant into two separate pots, be sure not to move the plants closer together. You will end up with more heat loss if the plants grow too closely together.
The third way to plant growing herbs is with a Cicerone. These are self-propelled garden forklike tools that propel the plant into growing mode. The Cicerone comes with a long handle to reach the highest positions in the plant. Plant seeds on the outer edges of the Cicerone. Water the plant well before planting seeds.
A popular method of growing herbs is known as transplanting. Transfer cilantro from one container to another. One problem with transferring the pod is it can bruise the plant if it isn’t tightly wrapped. The other problem is the old cilantro will usually begin to sprout green shoots.
One container is placed on the kitchen windowsill. This is easily done. The other container should be kept in an area where there are adequate sunshine but no strong winds. Water the plant well after it has been transplanted. Make sure you do not over water the herb.
While cilantro is generally considered to be an herb for the table, it can also be used for a variety of cooking uses. For example, fresh cilantro can be added to soups or stews. It can also be used in salads, served on sandwiches or as a hot sauce. For this reason, the Cilantro Aerogarden Pod is a great herb garden choice. It produces small leafy plants, which are perfect for making herb sauces and dressing.
As with any herb, cilantro can be used both fresh and dried. Since it can grow quite large, it’s best to grow it from seed so that it will grow to its full potential. With a little TLC, your herb garden will soon have Cilantro Aerogarden in the air!
If you are growing the Cilantro Aerogarden in a container, you will need to purchase a plastic pot or a glass jar. The color and type of plastic should be chosen based on the part of the country you live in. Clay pots are more practical for those living in colder climates. Glass jars will keep the moisture in, but are not as practical in high wind areas.
After planting, it’s a good idea to mulch your cilantro. This will help retain moisture in the soil. Be sure not to over do this, however. Mulching encourages a healthy root system, which is essential if you want to see good results from your herb. Overdoing it could cause your plants to become damaged.
The Cilantro Aerogarden Pod should be placed in a sunny, well-lit spot. Keep in mind that this will be one of the main growing periods of your herb plants. When choosing the location, make sure that it receives enough sunlight, but not too much. It needs plenty of sun, but not too much. It should be planted between two foot high fences, in order to provide good drainage. Make sure that there are no overhanging tree branches or trash on the soil surface near the planting area, since this could damage your plants.
You’ll enjoy growing cilantro, because it is such a versatile herb. You can use it in a variety of recipes, from salads to breads. You’ll also find that it adds flavor to everything you cook. The best way to grow and harvest your cilantro is by harvesting the leaves and letting them dry. Make sure to store them in airtight containers.
