Nasturtium officinale belongs to the cruciferous family and is originally a perennial from southern Europe and has long been appreciated for its enlivening powers. This is delicious cress rich in vitamins A, C and D. Grow it indoors like the common cress and outdoors in a shadowy, very damp place rich in lime, standing in water is good too. If it is never allowed to dry out, it grows well in common garden soil too. It is suitable for greenhouse growing, early and late in the season. Water cress can winter in the south. 10 cm of mutual space is needed. Preferably, harvest in cool weather when the water cress has milder taste and better keeping qualities. 5000 seeds/g, one portion yields several hundred seedlings. A portion contains about 600 seeds.
