Watercress

NZ $2.95

Description

A hardy aquatic plant found in its natural state along gently running streams but can be grown with success in gardens or pots, provided the soil is kept moist in a shaded spot. The pungent young shoots, with smooth and shiny dark green and at times bronze coloured leaves, can be cut once a week for use as a garnish, in salads, sandwiches, soups, dressings, and omelettes. Note: If a clean running water bed is available, raise seeds in a seed tray, and transplant to permanent water bed when 10-15cm high. Cut back any flowering stems that may appear.

Matures 60 days from direct sowing.
