Turkish Watercress, Garden cress

This cress gives finely parted leaves. It is packed with flavour and a strong aroma.

Sow in winter for indoor germination and microgreens. As of April and onwards, sow in the field. Dense seeding is advantageous to give you lots of greens to cut. Do not cover with soil or seed deep. Just keep the soil moist. You can start cutting seedlings at about 8 days. Two harvests per seedling are possible.
