EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS

Plant seeds in early spring or in late summer for a fall crop. Sow seed as thinly as possible, cover 1/4 inch deep and firm soil gently over seeds. Keep seed-bed evenly moist until seedlings emerge in 1 to 2 weeks.

 

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Thin seedlings 5 to 6 inches apart when plants are large enough to handle.

 

GROWING NOTES

Long lasting rustic arugula stays leafy so you can harvest all season long from the same plants. Harvest individual leaves at 4 to 5 inches long, or cut bunches of young tender leaves as needed. Keep the little yellow blossoms pruned back for best leaf production or use for tangy edible flowers. Rustic will winter over in mild climates but make a fresh sowing each spring for best quality.
