Just received my Lemon Grass plants in lovely condition - thankyou. When I rang to ask for expected delivery the lady who answered the phone was very helpful and friendly. Just looked at the rest of your web site and am VERY impressed, will be using you again. (I work as a full time gardener so am not easily impressed but you guys have done it)

Everyone should grow this! From sowing to eating in less than a week! This invaluable side salad or garnish is easily and quickly grown and is the perfect indoor crop.

This is true salad cress, not Rape which is often sold as Cress - so if you have been put off by the flavours of shop bought cress do 'give this a go' as you may be really surprised by its particularly good flavour.

  • Thinly sow at regular intervals on folded tissues or similar placed in a water proof container or dish - no soil or covering is necessary.
  • Place in a warm dark place - a kitchen cupboard is ideal (an 'airing cupboard' will be too warm).
  • After 4 days remove.
  • The cress will have germinated and be about 2" (5 cm) tall. It will appear blanched (white) due to lack of light.
  • Place in a well lit window position (add only a little water if tissue is drying out), turn container round the next day - your cress will now have 'greened up'.
  • Cut with scissors and use.
  • Children Like To Grow This!
  • Wash out a used hard boiled egg shell and get your child to draw on a face.
  • Fill with damp cotton wool and sow the surface.
  • Treat as above and in a few days you will have a 'Cress Head'.
  • In the alternative cut up egg boxes and join the cells of the egg box together to make 'Cress Caterpillars'.
