Description: Rocket is the mainstay of salads during Spring and Autumn. It is easy to grow fast to the eating stage and delicious, even at the flowering stage when you can add the nutty tasting flowers to salads. Larger leaves are also very tasty when stir fried.
Planting Instructions: Direct sow by sprinkling into prepared beds and cover while germinating from the birds. Repeated harvesting prevents it from going to seed fast.
