Grow Watercress

Share |

Watercress (Nasturtium officinale) is easy to grow from plant starts or seeds.

1: Select a container that doesn’t have drainage holes, and partially fill it with water.

2: Plant watercress plants or seeds in a planting mix in a slightly smaller container that does have drainage.

3: Set the container with the watercress in the larger pot with water; the watercress will draw up the moisture it needs.

4: Every three or four days, empty the water from the larger container and add fresh water.

Garden cress (Lepidium sativum)—a relative of watercress that also prefers moist soil—is also easy to grow, either in your garden or even indoors in winter.
