- Cress is a speedy grower, and are almost ready to harvest. If you think yours is ready, cut through the stems with scissors when they’re 5cm tall. Then comes the fun bit - eating what you've grown. Cress is very tasty in an egg sandwich, a salad, or even on top of nachos (we stole that idea from one of the photos we saw on our Growing Wall).
- Your carrots are probably taking a bit longer to grow than the cress, which is totally normal. The little seedlings should germinate (have germinated and are big enough to handle, you should take away half of them, leaving 7 or 8 seedlings to grow. This is called thinning out, and it makes sure the remaining carrots have all the space they need to grow big and strong.
- The runner beans will probably need a stick or ruler in the soil for support so that they can continue to grow upwards (for the giant, of course). After about 4-5 weeks, you have a decision to make. Either plant the runner bean in a bigger container, or plant it outside in the soil in your garden at home. The Sow & Grow cup is compostable, so you can just pop the whole lot into a hole in a bigger pot (with fresh compost) or in the ground in a veg patch outside.
