Pack of 1000 seeds approx for indoor or outdoor sowing - great flavour & easy to grow.
If you love watercress you'll love Aqua. A great peppery strong flavoured water cress that doesn't even need running water!
Just keep in damp place and keep moist and you will have a delicious healthy water cress to pick straight from the garden or windowsill.
Sow seeds thinly in a shallow, short, pre-watered row, lightly covering with a little soil. Keep moist as dry conditions impair germination. Allow 2.5cm (1in) between plants. Small sowings made every few weeks will ensure a continuous supply. Keep the bed moist at all times. Alternatively sow into pots and containers placed in a large saucer of water.
When large enough to handle, gradually accustom young plants to conditions outside for 2-3 weeks before planting out into their final cropping positions 2cm (1in) apart when the danger of frost has passed.
Keep well watered in periods of dry weather, regular picking will ensure continuity.
