Most children are amazed by the speedy growth of cress seeds, but none more so than the little ones.

My two-year-old enjoyed finding tiny containers (his toy cars!) in which to grow his cress seeds, and he was delighted to see it sprouting the very next day.

Tips on sowing cress seeds
Sprinkle cress seed onto dry cotton wool, but don’t water until the very end – the seed gets very sticky and difficult to handle when wet. Keep moist, on a warm windowsill and your cress
should be ready to cut in 5-6 days.
