Watercress is a popular microgreen with green, round leaves and is often used in cooking. Renowned for its unique, peppery flavoured leaves, it will be a brilliant addition to your dishes that always remains fresh and on hand.

The flavourful plant will taste delicious in salads, smoothies, sandwiches or as a bit of attractive garnish for your dish.

When taking care of your Watercress plant, make sure that you regularly flush the free-draining potting mix through with fresh water as it will not take well to stagnating water.

If planning on growing the plant outdoors, it’s a popular choice for planting in a pond or near a running stream. Please bear in mind that you should refrain from ingesting watercress grown in possibly contaminated or stagnant freshwater, and err on the side of caution by only eating the leaves grown in a pot.
