An aquatic flowering plant, with delicate white flowers blooming from May to July. A peppery salad herb crop popular in the UK, it can be easily grown in a container or pond, giving a regular harvest throughout the year, as long as the plant roots remain in water. Attractive to pollinators, especially hoverflies.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
