HOW TO GROW AMERICAN CRESS

Direct sow after last frost. American cress can grow in full shade, deep woodland, semi-shade, light woodland or no shade. Grows well on a north facing wall. The summer crop is best if it is given some shade while the winter crop succeeds in sunny positions, will bolt in summer heat. Land cress is often cultivated as a salad plant, when it is usually treated as an annual. Supply leaves all year round by successional sowing. It prefers moist soil. Like watercress, it loves water, but does not do well when partially submerged for long periods of time. Self-sows freely when growing in a suitable position. This perennial needs full sun and frequent watering in any garden, unless near a direct source of water. Soil pH 5.6–7.5. Hardiness zones 6. Biennial.

Federal germination standard: 60%. Usual seed life: 5 years.

Soil Temp. Germ. 50–70ºF
Days to Germ. 5–10
Plant Spacing 4–6”
