An incredibly easy and fast growing salad crop. The flavour is more pungent than ordinary Cress. 

Sow thinly direct into the growing site 1cm (1/2") deep in rows 30cm (12") apart. For baby cut & come again leaves sow at 15cm (6") between the rows. Early and autumn sowing will benefit from being covered by cloches.

When seedlings are large enough to handle thin out to 15cm apart. Water regularly during dry spells. Autumn sowings can be made under cloches or in containers in a cold frame or cold greenhouse for harvesting through the winter months.

It can also be grown in shallow trays of moist compost on a windowsill. The original micro green!

Harvest: June to November
