Description

With the taste of watercress, but super easy, prolific and long-cropping, this has become one of our favourite autumn, winter and spring cut-and-come-again salad leaves. Keep picking even in November or February, and it will keep producing. We cropped 32 colanders per square metre through last winter for soups and salads. It just never stopped. You can sow in spring and summer too, but the flavour is even stronger.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Can be grown in container pots or window boxes. It is very tolerant of cold weather. Keep well watered.
