  • Land Cress (Autumn)

    £4.99
    (10 Plants)

    If you love water cress, then this is one for you!
    As the name suggests, the key difference is that land cress is grown on the land, not the water but the taste is very similar. If you grow it under cover (a cloche or fleece) or in a milder region you should be able to harvest it throughout winter.

    Number of plants: 10

    In the kitchen: Perfect with your steak and fries, pop into your salads for a peppery kick or add a handful to pasta dishes.

    Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery in September and October. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.

    Planting/Growing Advice: Plant in September and October in raised beds, traditional veg patches or in pots and planters. They will grow quite quickly while the weather is relatively warm in autumn, and then will slow down in the colder months. They are frost tolerant and can be grown outside, but will grow faster in a greenhouse/polytunnel or under horticultural fleece/cloche.

    When to harvest: You can start picking the outer leaves a month or so after planting. Leave a few baby leaves in the centre of the plant when harvesting and it will keep producing leaves for several months.
