  5. Harvesting & Growing Cilantro in 5 Gallon Containers

    You can grow a lot of herbs and leaf lettuces in a 5 gallon container. I
    over-seed my containers when I just want to harvest leaves. Because you are
    not growing the plants to full size you can put in a lot of seeds, get a a
    lot of leaves, feed them and get more leaves.

    The trick to getting more leaves until either the weather changes be it
    cold, frost or high heat… is to cut the leaves off and leave the roots in
    the ground. Most leaf herbs and leaf lettuces will quickly send up more
    leaves for you to harvest. This will go on until the weather changes.

    Cilantro is a great herb to over-seed in a container. I also put in some
    arugula. I like the contrasting tastes in my salsa dishes. The video shows
    you how to harvest the leaves and talks about the points I mention in this
    entry. You can find this video at my new YouTube Channel for new gardeners:

  6. You can over-seed cilantro in containers and get tons of leaves. Cut the
    leaves and leave the roots in the ground for maximum yield.

    I haven’t had too much luck growing cilantro from seed for some reason. I’d
    like to try this – would be so handy to have by the kitchen door for
    cooking – great idea!
