Growing Calendar for Salad Seeds - Watercress Aqua
Delivery: 5-7 working days
Watercress Aqua – so easy to grow and perfect for UK conditions
Produces a large crop high in calcium and iron with a delicous peppery flavour.
Seeds can be sown from mid-May to September and can be harvested from June to October. Regular picking is essential for continuity. Use watercress as an effective catch-crop. They mature quickly and give you a good supply of leaves while you’re waiting for slower growing crops like leeks or cabbages.
We recommend you sow seeds directly in shade and keep moist. Alternatively Watercress Aqua can be grown in pots placed in a large saucer of water.
Peppery Flavours - Easy to Grow
SOW OUTDOORS - May-September thinly ½in (1cm) deep 12in (30cm) apart in harvest location. Sow in a shady moist spot, or in a 12in (30cm) patio pot placed on a larger saucer of water.
THIN OUT - 1in (2.5cm) apart.
TIP - Keep well watered, if growing in a container keep saucer topped up daily. Regular picking is essential for continuity.
I cannot rate the purchase as 5 stars, as I have not planted the seeds yet.
slow to germinate. I have grown Aqua successfully for several years but was unable to find the seeds locally this year.
