Is spreading it everywhere a bad thing? The cilantro is driving me crazy! It really is as bad as the weeds in my garden, to think I've heard of people who can't get it to grow! I just hate throwing it out like a weed, but it really is a weed in my garden! Uggg

make sure to clean out your mower well after mowing the mint or you could spread it everywhere,

Ooh! a mint lawn! I am slowly removing all the grass in my front yard and I've been planting mostly things that will stay low groundcover so they don't freak out the neighbors, but nothing I've put in is anywhere near as hardy as mint. I could put in a patch and just mow it! I'm going to go transplant some right now.

(And yes, my cilantro self-seeds and spreads, but it bolts so quickly that I'm glad to have large patches of it.)

I knew about the mint, infact, I have some that I'm trying to let take over my front yard! But, I didn't know about the cilantro. I'm taking some of it to my son, he likes to cook & loves cilantro!

I almost wish that I had that problem. I always time it wrong. My cilantro goes to seed before my tomatoes and peppers are even ripe.

I have the same problem with mint. It's all over and I knew better than to plant it. I wonder which one of my neighbors I have to thank!

I encourage mine to reseed although I do like it in one spot so it is easier to clip. It only grows well here in cool weather anyway....and the cool weather is gone!

Many herbs will reseed prolificly! Also most herbs are better before they flower. If the herb start to put on flowers on many of them you can cut off the flowers or cut the plant back much shorter and the plant will regrow.
Also cilantro seeds are coriander, so if you use coriander you can collect the flowers as they start to dry and save the seeds.

Someone on one of my teams was asking about cilantro, I can't find the post. But, just a warning...or this could just be a problem I am having. Cilantro reseeds itself, I live in a windy area & obviously, last year, my cilantro "reseeded" itself ALL OVER MY GARDEN! It has become a weed! This is good if you love cilantro, but I personally think, in my food & in my garden, a little cilantro goes along way...literally! lol
