Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover, year-round for windowsill crops. Sprinkle seed onto the surface of damp compost, press seed in lightly but do not cover. Keep warm and moist. May also be sown outdoors in summer or early autumn for larger, hotter leaves to develop. Prefers fertile, moist soil in partial shade as it tends to bolt if conditions are too hot and dry.
Care Tips If you have planted your cress outside, it will need winter protection from a cloche or fleece or move plants indoors. Once allowed to grow on naturally, cress will reach about 15cm (6in) with slightly feathered, divided leaves, if left to grow for longer it will flower.
Harvesting Year-round, cut with scissors or pinch out cress tips as required when plants reach 8-10cm (3-4in) tall, or 3-4 weeks from sowing. The leaves and flowers are both edible.
