Planting Directions: Plant seed indoors early in the Spring for transplanting later. Cover seed with 1/8” of fine soil. Germination takes 7-10 days with temperatures of 55 degrees in soil that is kept constantly wet. Transplant seedlings into soil that is at least 3 deep in water that is 4” deep when plants are fully mature. Constant cutting keeps water cress from flowering and produces a bushy plant.
