When To Sow - When to Harvest
Growing Tips:To ensure the highest rate of germination and to account for the unpredictable British weather, grow these indoors on a warm sun soaked window cill. Cress does not require much and can be kept permanently in a pot, there is no need to transplant these out into borders or plots. Keep well watered with plenty of sun light. Cress grows quickly and so would benefit from occasional use of an organic fertiliser such as liquid seaweed extract.
