Land Cress prefers shade. This makes it ideal for growing underneath a tall crop, such as Jerusalem Artichokes, runner (pole) beans, sweetcorn or sunflowers.

It tastes similar to watercress (quite peppery) and is mainly used as a substitute for it. Use sparingly in salads, as a spinach substitute, or turned into an excellent soup.

Growing Tips

Keep the soil moist with regular watering, preferably before mid afternoon. Protect from slugs and snails. Remove flower stalks as they appear.

Use

Young leaves – raw, cooked or used as a seasoning. A hot, spicy and peppery flavour. It is delicious in salads. Leaves can be obtained throughout the year if autumn-sown plants are given some protection in winter (use thermal Frost Cloth).  The seeds can be sprouted and added to salads, etc.
