Previously I have mentioned in my blog how my watercress keeps reappearing. In Melbourne we are really not meant to treat it as a perenial, but maybe we should.
This is a picture of the handful that I just removed from my garden, as it is taking over the whole area:

You can clearly see the roots of the plants developing in this photo right up the stems:

So I have placed the cuttings in water and will give them to family when they visit tomorrow.


  1. I love watercrss!! Did you grow it from seed? I'd like to try it.

  2. Hi Mrs Bok, yes I grew it from seed. Sown directly, and very easy to germinate. The only thing is that it likes water- hence the name I suppose. So you can't let it dry out too much. Great value to grow though, as it creaps as it grow so you can just keep picking.
