15 Aug 08 Turnaferbit (Australia - temperate climate)
Rocket is an annual plant. It will come up from seed year after year. You will never be without it, but is easy to pull out. It is a weed in some areas. I have never liked the taste, and always thought it tasted and smelt like Turps. (yes the bottle of Turps used to remove oil paint). Try Googleing the botanical name and its chemicals, then Google those names and you will come up with a surprise............... No wonder I thought it smelt like Turps. Happy gardening Turnaferbit.
