    You've taken too much of the plant and weakened it. If you've cut the central stem it won't regrow.

    Never been able to grow it past the "microgreens" stage, so well done to get this far!

    Follow other's advice but rest assured if it did grow back it'd bolt Not that I'm jealous or anything (Mods, we need a green envious emoji...)

    It can take a few weeks to grow back, maybe sow again Tarragon it grows better in the second half of summer. if you leave one or two plants to go to seed they'll provide all the seed you need for a couple of years. Last year one plant for us produced almost half a litre of seed.

    It's nigh-on impossible to grow one coriander plant and get it to supply all your needs for any length of time. It has a strong tendency to bolt. Your best bet is to treat coriander like lettuce and keep starting off new seeds for a successional supply. If you grow it in the ground, letting it self-seed also helps.

    Edited: Sorry, Tarragon, I see you've replied while my comment was flying through the ether. Looks like you've got the right strategy.
