Rocket Salad, one of the most aromatic and spicy herbs in the garden, with the unique taste that we enjoy in green salads and in cold sandwiches together with lettuce, spinach and Italian parmesan! In recent years, arugula has been particularly popular and is planted in many gardens during autumn and winter, as its cultivation presents no difficulties. And if we don’t have a garden, it doesn’t matter! Growing arugula in a pot is so easy that it’s an ideal starter for novice gardeners, as well as young children taking their first steps into gardening. There are many varieties of arugula to choose from, with more aromatic or spicier flavors. We will also find broad-leaved varieties of arugula with lush vegetation, as well as varieties with a special red-green foliage.
Rocket Salad needs frequent watering in small doses, especially during the initial growth period of the plant. It needs good watering in early spring when the temperatures rise to avoid premature flowering. Rocket Salad has no special fertilization requirements, although as we have mentioned the addition of digested manure and compost before planting is important to have a bountiful harvest. Additionally, we add organic fertilizer once, after the first harvest to enhance the vegetation and its cool green foliage.
