How to easily grow cress indoors.

by Cat Woods

To grow cress indoors, simply line a punnet or tray with wet tissue or cotton wool. Then evenly sprinkle the cress seed over the base. Sound simple? 

Cress is a powerhouse micro green vegetable that packs several important nutrients but is extremely low in calories. It contains a wealth of antioxidants and it’s also a good source of minerals that protect your bones.

Why not have a go…

  1. Fold some toilet paper or kitchen roll in half. 
  2. Sprinkle a generous layer of cress seeds evenly over the paper 
  3. Cover the tray

It’s a great way to teach children about micro greens 🥬 

In about two weeks, crisp, flavourful cress is ready for use in salads and sandwiches. Easy! 

Please let me know how you get on.
