Watercress Seeds For Growing Microgreens
Watercress microgreens have a peppery, slightly spicy flavour and are best eaten fresh in salads, sandwiches and wraps. They are easy to grow and are ready to harvest in just 10-12 days.
Watercress seeds are small and mucilaginous, like chia seeds, meaning they create a jelly substance in water and swell, producing a gel-like mass. This means, unlike other microgreens, there is no need to soak these seeds first. See instructions for growing below.
Our watercress seeds can also be grown to full maturity.

Our products are delivered using a number of courier services, primarily Fastway couriers and Australia Post.
We dispatch all orders within 1-2 working days. Orders to major cities will ordinarily arrive within 1-3 working days and orders to rural areas will ordinarily arrive within 5-10 working days. Orders weighing 250 grams or less will be sent in a standard Australia Post envelope which can take a longer period. Orders weighing over 250 grams will be sent with a much faster courier service.
Despite these estimated delivery times of arrival, we DO NOT guarantee deliveries will arrive at this specified time or date. We always do our best but ultimately we are dependant on our courier companies. Always give yourself adequate time for an order to arrive.
Tracking and your signature
All our deliveries are tracked and require your signature. This allows you to track your parcel at any time. If you are not available at the time of delivery, a calling card will be left for you to arrange a suitable time for the item to be delivered. Deliveries can arrive at any time during day from 7am to 6pm. We are unable to give specific delivery times. Please do not request that deliveries are made on or within a certain time, as this is not possible.
Authority to Leave
If you wish, at the online checkout page, you may give authority to leave your parcel at the door or some other location.
By placing an order for perishable items, such as fresh wheatgrass, broccoli, radish etc, you automatically agree to have the items left at your front door regardless of whether there is someone available to sign for it.

Your phone number
It is best if you provide us with your phone number at checkout to ensure a smooth delivery service. You can be confident that your phone number will only be used if there is a problem with delivering your product. Please do not request that couriers call you prior to delivery as they are unable to do this.

We reserve the right to request an extra remote area surcharge above the freight charges already paid if your delivery location is classified by our couriers as remote. We will contact you prior to despatch to advise you of the surcharge and to seek your confirmation or further instructions.
We also reserve the right to request an extra surcharge for deliveries to P.O. Box addresses that are over 5kg. We will contact you prior to despatch to advise you of the surcharge and to seek your confirmation or further instructions.
