HERBS

This chart provides general guidelines for herbs that are amenable to succession planting at 7-day and 14-day intervals.

Take note that the timing intervals listed here are based on standard operation growing practices. Season extension and other more evolved growing practices can allow growers to successfully plant and harvest earlier and later than the standard date windows suggested below. Intervals between plantings can also be modified under certain conditions.

7-DAY INTERVALS
Herb Planting Recommendations Notes
Cilantro / Coriander Sow in spring through early summer, and in early fall. Will bolt quickly in hot weather. Protect later plantings with row cover for extended harvest.
