How much do you trim? I am new and would like to but my plants are already tall - how far do I trim back?

During the growing season, keep it trimmed. If you have to trim more than you can use, tie it up to dry. Then use the dry spices in the winter months.
Yes, it is a cool weather crop best grown in spring and fall if you live in warm/hot climates. I live and grow at 8300 feet in zone 3 so cilantro is wonderful to grow here in the summer. As far as 'trimming', harvest it like you do basil. Keep it from flowering.
