CILANTRO GROOMED

Many of our herbs and tender annuals need grooming to remove dead and damaged foliage. To groom winter-damaged plants such as the cilantro above, I simply clip or pinch off any dead or damage foliage or flowers. Since I have done this, the cilantro has doubled in size. I have also groomed parsley, flowering kale foliage, and pansy blooms.
