I have a large cilantro patch that I had growing throughout the winter. the heat has now made it bolt, flower, and some even have seed buds (green) but have not turned brown yet.
The area that the cilantro is will be used for tomatoes and peppers after I harvest the seeds. Because of this, im itching to get the large flowering cilantro out to get something new in its place.
At what point can I cut down and take out flowering cilantro and still get it to form seeds that are useable? if I must wait until they are brown, how soon after they become brown will they be good to use to grow new plants this fall?
