Watercress

$2.00

Min Qty: 1/16 oz

Aquatic or semi-aquatic perennial down to Zone 4, native of Europe but with a history that goes back several millennia to Egypt and China.  Related to cabbage, mustard greens and arugula.  Lends a bite to salads and soups, and as a tea. 

60 days.  Start seeds indoors before last frost and transplant to a cold frame, keeping well-watered.  Alternately, direct seed in a soggy location after the threat of frost has passed.  Good choice for container or hydroponic gardening .  Keep picked and use fresh.  Once it starts flowering the leaves turn bitter.  Very hardy, bordering on invasive.


Cannot ship to Connecticut or Illinois.
