Time To Plant Arugula

November 13, 2013

If you live in a warm winter region, you can plant fast-growing arugula in the garden or in a container now.

Here, my friend Sarah covers the ‘Rocket’ arugula seed. She’ll grow the arugula on her sunny deck.

Check my post from last winter, Arugula in A Pot for instructions. Order seed from Botanical Interests, Kitchen Garden Seeds or choose from six varieties of arugula at Renee’s Garden.

Snarky aspersions as a foodies’ cliche, arugula is so common partly because it’s so easy to grow and quick to harvest. With the exception of cabbage moths few pests bother it, and the plant reseeds easily. Arugula is the classic cut-and-come-again crop: The more you pluck, the more it grows.   Los Angeles Times

Arugula is easy to germinate and ready to eat in 30-40 days, earlier for micro greens.
