Children love growing cress and it tastes a lot better than the shop bought trays of cress. It is a quick growing, nutritious and tasty salad cress maturing in a matter of days and can be sown year-round to grow inside. It is the perfect indoor vegetable as no soil is required.

A) Cut up cells of eggboxes can make great ‘cress caterpillars’.
B) Empty, used eggshells can make great heads with ‘cress hair’ growing from the top and funny faces drawn on the shells.
C) How about sowing the seeds on moistened tissue in the shape of the first letter of the childs name?
