I've haven't had much luck with cilantro, either. I think maybe the key is successive planting, same as lettuces & spinach. That's what I am going to try to do this year.

i always wondered about that..mine didnt take long to start flowering
Cilantro was tough and mine bolted quickly. The pot I used was smaller and I get sun all day so it dried out in a hurry. Thing is, once the coriander seeds arrived and dried out naturally, I picked them off and replanted in the same pot. About 3 days later more little plants started arriving. I did this all summer and it worked pretty well. I trimmed back the original plant and replanted the coriander seeds. It works but takes some patience.
