Description

Great for growing all year, with successional sowings, to give you super-speedy and easy micro-cress to add to salads, sandwiches and over soups. They give that wondrous zap of flavour.

Care Tips

If you have planted your cress outside, it will need winter protection from a cloche or fleece or move plants indoors. Allowed to grow naturally, cress will reach about 15cm with slightly feathered, divided leaves and will eventually flower.
