Organic Herbs: Arugula Planting Instructions:
Arugula prefers full sun and can germinate quickly even in cold soil. Plant seeds 1/4 inch deep and 4" apart in rows 15" apart. You can start planting as soon as the ground can be worked. Firm soil lightly and water gently. When seedlings are 3" tall, thin to 6" apart. Arugula grows well in containers if a fertile soil blend is used. Make new plantings every 2 to 3 weeks for a continuous harvest. Stop planting 3 to 4 weeks before the first frost in the fall.

Organic Herbs: Arugula Harvesting Instructions:
About 35 to 40 days after planting, the leaves will be ready for harvest. Start by picking the outside leaves at the base of the plant. The center leaves should be left for future harvests. Reduce heat and moisture stress to slow bolting. Also, provide some shade for warm-season plantings. Stop your harvest once plants flower, as the leaves will become bitter. The Arugula flowers are also edible.
