Watercress can be a bit finicky to grow, but upland cress gives you the same flavour - just a bit stronger - and without the hassle. This ancient food plant has recently been rediscovered by gourmets and is starting to make its appearance in high-end fresh produce stores, but it’s almost laughably easy to grow. Best of all, it can last as long as two years, giving you piquant leaves all the way through its life cycle.
