Cilantro is hard to grow in summer as it bolts quickly in the heat, and once it bolts, the leaves don't taste as good IMO. I find it easier to keep alive indoors in summer.

I live in the Low Country (central SC coast), and cilantro grows well outdoors for me in early to mid spring and mid to late fall. It's periodically too cold here in winter to keep alive then, either.

However, parsley, rosemary, and thyme do well all year here--and basil, dill, oregano, and chives spring through fall. Herbs are so pricy, and usually sold in sub-optimal amounts, so I like growing my own. I used to grown my own mesclun leaves, older & lazier. Too much bending ;-) I should consider growing my own cherry tomatoes though--I especially love those nutty-tasting yellow ones.
