Would you eat watercress if it was growing in your pond? Hubby was given some pond plants by someone who grows them for a living, last year i noticed watercress growing along with them and tugged it out and stuck it on the compost heap. Well this year its growing en mass and hubby informs me that they grow their pond plants in the fresh water cress beds. So i was wondering as the water in my pond is not fresh nor flowing would you eat it? Many thanks.
