How Do I Grow Arugula

To direct seed, sow your seeds into your container as early as possible in spring at about 1/4" (6mm) deep. A light frost will not damage seedlings. If you want baby greens space the seeds to 16 per sqf, but if you prefer more mature plants, then thin the seeds to 4 per sqf. Succession plant your arugula every 2-3 weeks for greens all season long. Arugula prefers cold weather and will bolt in summer if they aren’t put in a shady cool area.

Harvesting

When leaves are 4-6 inches long, harvest them. You can harvest whole plant by pulling or cutting just below soil level, or cut the outer leaves as needed. You can also "cut and come again" method where you cut the entire plant down to 1-2” above the soil, leaving the root system and plant crown intact. The leaves will keep re-growing every few weeks for more harvests. You may find the leaves become more spicy with each cutting.

Helpful Tips and Tricks

Add flowers of bolted plants to salads or try Italian variety for a stronger taste.

Preparing and using

When you’ve harvested your leaves make sure to use them while they are fresh as they don’t freeze well. Arugula is great in salads or used as garnish! The strong flavour adds a nice kick to any recipe you choose!
