I have never (not even once), come close (or even semi-close) to being able to grow cilantro in my garden. I have tried all growing conditions ( full sun, partial sun, moist, dry) including careful tending and regularly delivered endearments to please grow. All to no avail. Until now.
At the beginning of May, while shopping for cards, in downtown Lawrence, at Ruff House Art, I found this. A garden jar with organic cilantro, grown in a self-watering planter INSIDE the house.
Instructions were read, the jar was set up next to my geranium sprout, and fingers were crossed. Within a few days things looked good.
Definite signs of life. But I remained skeptical. And that was wrong of me.
I have now harvested twice and it's still growing. Could it be that I will have a cilantro plant that will last the whole summer? Maybe beyond? Time will tell. Has anyone else used these before?
