What 'meadow saffron' and 'autumn crocus'? 


You could have the same problem with Dicentra, depending on what common name you use.

Cress question

Mine are by a west-facing window, partly shaded by a tree, so I don't think they need lots of sun. And a very sunny spot might make then dry out too much. I grow them on a handful of sheets of kitchen towel and I make sure I dribble water onto them every morning as otherwise drying out is a problem.

Cress question

Mustard and cress seem to be underrated just because they are so easy to grow - no gardening programme is ever likely to mention them. I have a half-size tray of each on the window-sill pretty much all year, giving a weekly harvest. Mustard, especially, has a lovely sharp flavour.
