More about the plants...
- Arugula needs to grow quickly for best quality. This can only be done by giving the plants everything they need.
- Soil: The soil is called upon to produce a lot of foliage in a short time, so it should be fertile, moisture retentive and well drained. *
- Water: These fast-growing plants must have all of the water they need for rapid growth. It is important that the soil is kept moist at all times. *
- Food: The main requirement for Arugula is nitrogen, but they also need moderate amounts of potassium and phosphorus. *
- Harvesting: You can plant these greens closer together than the variety requirements and then thin them out as they grow (eat the thinnings). You can thin them to a final spacing of 6" apart. Trim uniform green leaves of at least 4 to 5".*
- Did You Know?: Arugula is rich in Vitamins A and K, as well as folic acid. It is also good source of zinc, potassium, calcium and iron.*
