BK Tips

  • Watercress is a plant grown on water and needs to be enjoyed quickly once it has been harvested, available all year around but is best enjoyed April - September
  • Always select crisp dark leaves that are undamaged and not wilting; it can be purchased in bags but is best if you can get English watercress that is sold in bunches
