CRESS, GARDEN (Lepidium sativum)
This is slightly tender, and unsuitable for winter cultivation outdoors, but during the remainder of the year it can be sown at intervals of ten days, sowing the seeds broadcast and pressing them down into the ground without anyover them. Sheets of paper are laid flat over the seeds for the first three or four days, until germination takes place. The soil is kept moist, otherwise no attention is necessary. Both plain and curled varieties are grown and are very acceptable in the salad bowl. This is the Cress which is sold in association with Mustard. Like Mustard, it can also be grown in shallow boxes under glass, in a frame, or a heated greenhouse.
