Cress Bubbles Seeds
Info: There`s no doubt that growing it on the windowsill is a great way for youngsters to learn about germination, but we seem to have forgotten that there`s more to it than skinny white stalks topped with a couple of immature leaves. You will, by letting cress grow, gain handfuls of leafy growth.
Cress `Bubbles` is a unique cress variety that is bright green in colour with ruffled blistered leaves with a peppery flavour. It is suitable for using in salads and on sandwiches, or growing to maturity used in stir-fries, curries, chicken, salsa and as a garnish to soups. Fairly slow to bolt.
Sowing & cultivation: Seeds can be sown all year round in pots, seed trays or on cotton wool. Seeds can be sprinkled over the soil surface. Do not cover with soil and keep the seeds permanently moist. Thin out the seedlings if they are too close. Plants grow to around 15cm high in about four weeks and can then be harvested.
