I might be going to have the perfect spot for it after the tree comes down ... does anyone know if it gets attacked by the Cabbage Whites like other tropaeolum/ae?

.... oh, and this one looks gorgeous too           Anyone grown it?

Sad plant!

I'd cut it hard back in the spring and repot in fresh compost in a bigger pot or in the ground and wait and see what you get - do let us know

Watercress...would you....

Posted: 10/10/2015 at 07:32

It's fine to eat it - the reason we're advised not to eat foraged wild watercress is because of the danger of contracting liver fluke from grazing animals which may have fouled the water. 

In a self-contained garden pond with no grazing animal access it should be perfectly fine as Welshonion says
