I have used cress in this tea cup but any small flowers such as Tete a Tete daffodils, daisies, or herbs such as coriander, basil, mint etc can be used too but may need a drainage hole put in the tea cup.
This is done by using a drill and ceramic drill bit to gently drill a small hole in the bottom of the cup. Sometimes the cup may crack and brake but that's the hit and miss of drilling into vintage china!
What you will need:
a tea cup
Spray bottle or small watering can.
Clean the tea cup of any debris.
Fill the teacup about half full of compost.
open the packet of cress seeds and sprinkle seeds thinly across the surface.
Cover the seeds with another layer of compost until its about 3/4 of the way up the cup.
Press the soil in all around the cup until flat.
Using spray bottle or watering can add a little water until damp being careful not to waterlog the cup.
All you have to do now is wait for the cress to grow! Continue to water the cress every couple of days until it's ready to cut in about 10 days.
