The leaves and stems of garden cress can be eaten raw. Can be sown throughout the year indoors in potting compost or any other conceivable substrate that is clean and holds moisture. Sow regular small amounts, so fresh plants can be cut constantly. Once the plants are approx. 6 cm high cut off the leaves and use for salads, garnishing, sauces, and sandwiches. Good plants for children to quickly see an edible result.
