A perfect introduction to growing your own food for little children, even if you haven't got a garden, with this incredibly easy-to-grow salad ingredient. The crisp, crunchy shoots have a tang that adds a lovely texture and flavour to salads or sprinkled in sandwiches, and you'll have a crop within little more than a week from your kitchen windowsill.

Info & Care

3000 seeds

Growing instructions: You don't even need compost: simply place a sheet of folded kitchen towel or a piece of cellulose sponge into the bottom of a small punnet or saucer, dampen it, then sprinkle the seeds over the top. Place on a windowsill and keep damp at all times. Once the seedlings produce green leaves and are about 3cm high, snip off near the base as required. Alternatively, children will love to fill half an eggshell (don't forget to paint the face on), with dampened cotton wool and sow the seeds into the top to create cress heads, complete with green 'hair!
