I didn't like land cress either, have to say I don't find watercress any hassle at all, it germinates well, slow to start growing, but then suddenly bursts into action, just rinse it under a tap and eat it whilst wandering round the garden.

The watercress flowers are quite hot but nice and tender and would be good mixed in a salad to liven it up a bit.
