Growing Cilantro

CindyJ | Jun 15, 201106:52 AM     12

I've never grown cilantro before, so I don't know if this is "normal." I started with a small plant, which had leaves that looked just like the cilantro I buy in the market. I planted it in a large container that has a few other herbs -- basil and parsley. The new growth on the cilantro looks more like "fronds" than leaves. It's light and feathery. Do I need to do something to the plant to make it grow more "leafy"? Maybe prune it? Is there hope for a plant that's already beginning to flower? Thanks!
