How to plant cress seeds fabric?
- Prepare the soil: Choose a well-draining location with fertile soil. Amend the soil with compost if needed. Ensure the soil pH is slightly acidic to neutral.
- Sow the seeds: Place the cress seeds fabric over the prepared soil. Start at one end and unroll it across the area you want to cover.
- Watering: Water the soil after planting to ensure good seed-to-soil contact. Keep the soil consistently moist during germination.
- Germination: Cress seeds typically germinate within a few days to a week. Once germinated, thin out the seedlings if they are too crowded, leaving space for the remaining plants to grow.
- Harvesting: Harvest cress when the seedlings are a few inches tall. Use scissors to snip the leaves just above the soil level. Continuous harvesting promotes new growth.
How to harvest cress?
- Wait for Adequate Growth: Allow the cress seedlings to grow to a height of a few inches, typically around 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters). This usually takes about 10 to 14 days after germination.
- Use Clean Tools: Before harvesting, make sure your scissors or gardening shears are clean and sanitized. This helps prevent the introduction of any contaminants to the plants.
- Harvesting Technique: When the cress seedlings have reached the desired height, use scissors to cut the leaves just above the soil level. Make clean, swift cuts to avoid damaging the remaining plants.
- Harvesting Tips: Harvest the outer leaves first, allowing the inner leaves to continue growing. You can harvest the entire plant if you prefer, especially if you want a larger quantity of cress for a specific culinary use.
- Continuous Harvesting: Cress is a cut-and-come-again crop, meaning you can continue harvesting it multiple times. As long as the plants are healthy and growing, you can snip off additional leaves every few days.
- Avoid Flowering Stage: Try to harvest cress before it reaches the flowering stage. Once the plant starts producing flowers, the leaves may become bitter, and the plant shifts its energy toward seed production.
- Harvesting from Different Plants: If you have multiple cress plants growing together, distribute your harvest across different plants rather than concentrating on one. This allows for even growth and ensures a continuous supply.
- Store Properly: Use harvested cress immediately for the freshest flavour. If you have more than you can use at once, store it in the refrigerator. Place the harvested cress in a plastic bag or container lined with a damp paper towel to maintain freshness.
