Growing Rocket, also Arugula/Rucola

25 Nov 09 Kathryn (Australia - temperate climate)
I'm no expert gardener, but I planted seedlings of rocket in the vegie patch about 4 yrs ago. I picked leaves whenever I needed them and pinched off anything looking like flowers and just dropped them in the gdn. The second yr, the plants were not very active, but I left them in - mainly thru laziness. Since then, they just keep producing. Not massive plants, but enough to meet our needs. A bit of mulch, water and occasional manure, but really they haven't had much care at all and they are better now than they have ever been. This yr, there are now numerous seedlings - very strong-tasting and robust plants. Good luck. Kathryn
