We are passionate about growing salad cress and want to pass our knowledge and experience on to young growers. Here is our definitive guide for growing salad cress at home.
Follow the simple instructions below and you will soon be enjoying your own salad cress.
The salad cress seeds we use are actually 80% rape seed and 20% cress seed. Most people find 100% cress seed has a strong flavour. When produced commercially, salad cress must look, as well as taste good. All seedlings must be the same length, have an open leaf and be dark green in colour.
List of equipment
Additional information: Salad cress likes quite high amounts of fertiliser. If you want to use some extra fertiliser, get some proprietary brand of liquid feed, either general purpose or tomato feed and put some into the water.
