View of the Watercress Beds towards Little London
Watercress for the table is grown in large beds, especially along chalk streams. Two forms are cultivated: one known as green or summer cress, and a hybrid between this and a wild species, brown or winter cress. They are distinguished by colour and time of harvesting, as their names suggest. In cultivation they are propagated from cuttings, but in the wild they spread by creeping stems or seeds. Watercress is rich in vitamin C, and used to be prescribed for the treatment of scurvy.
