Children love growing cress! It is so easy for them to grow and quick too, so they won’t get bored waiting for the results! And they can eat them! This is a great party bag gift, much better than a tacky plastic toy that they will be bored with after a few seconds. Plus, by giving children seeds you are encouraging them to grow and nurture, rather than fill landfill with cheap plastic nonsense, and you are encouraging them to eat their greens!
Cress is a nutrient-dense raw food, containing vitamins A, C and K and some dietary minerals.
The seed packet measures 9 x 12 cm and is made from recycled white paper. The cress seeds are inside in a paper sachet, not plastic and foil. The sowing instructions are on the back.
Growing cress seeds is also a great classroom activity – we can supply the seed packets relevant to your school with your school logo and class name, for example. Just let us know when you order.
