Greek Cress

A prettier version of cress so often used in an egg-and-cress sandwich. We use Greek cress through all our bowls of mixed salad leaves all year, but particularly in the winter, when this is pretty hardy and reliable to grow.

Description

A prettier version of cress so often used in an egg-and-cress sandwich. It’s indeed good with egg mayonnaise, but we use Greek cress through all our bowls of mixed salad leaves all year, but particularly in the winter, when this is pretty hardy and reliable to grow.

Keep moist at all times
