Good things take time and care

Take a seedling tray with medium sized cells & drainage holes at the

Sowing

  • Take a container/pot of 8-10 inches height having drainage holes at the bottom.
  • The Organic Veggie mix is the most ideal substrate (Potting Mix) for growing vegetables. Ideal potting mix for the Arugula is 2 part garden soil & 1 part organic manure OR 1 part garden soil, 1 part coco-peat & 1 part vermicompost.
  • Fill the container/pot with potting mix then gently flatten it out with your hand/trowel.
  • Sprinkle the seeds as uniformly as possible onto the potting mix or Sow arugula seed ¼ inch deep and 6 to 8 inches apart.
  • Cover lightly with soil (0.5 inch) the arugula seeds need light to germinate. If they are deeply buried, they will not germinate.
  • Add water carefully, either using a rose attachment or a gentle spray from the hose. You don't want the water pressure or weight of the water to disturb your seeds and drive them too deeply into the soil.
Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium

Caring

  • Grow arugula in full sun; it will tolerate partial shade in winters. So place your containers accordingly.
  • Sow once a week or every two weeks to keep a constant supply. 
  • Keep the soil evenly moist until seedlings emerge, which will take from 7 to 14 days (If Seeds are Sprinkled thin plants to 6-8 inches apart when the seedlings are 4 inches tall. You can eat the thinnings. Space rows 10 to 12 inches apart)
  • Keep an eye out for early signs of insects/fungal infection or any other infections. Spray appropriate medicines as soon as you notice the first signs of an infection.
  • Arugula is ready for harvest 40 days after sowing.  The younger the leaves, the more tender and sweet they will be, so don't wait too long to start picking them.
  • Once the seedlings are 3 to 4 inches long, you can either pull out the whole plant or thin them out. If you want the plants to continue to grow, you can collect just the leaves by cutting or tearing them off toward the base.
  • Once the seedlings are 3 to 4 inches long, you can either pull out the whole plant or thin them out. If you want the plants to continue to grow, you can collect just the leaves by cutting or tearing them off toward the base.
Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deep

Common Problems

1. Bolting (production of a flowering stem)?
Arugula bolts most commonly in response to warm or hot weather, uneven soil moisture, wilting, or soil dryness. Overharvesting, rootbinding, and other stressors may also encourage arugula to bolt early. There is nothing that can be done to reverse or stop bolting once it begins; it may be possible to extend harvest slightly by cutting off flower stalks as they appear. 

2. Strong flavor or bitterness in leaves?
Usually the result of warm-to-hot temperatures, insufficient or uneven watering, or bolting. These issues may also result in slow or no growth, small plants, and small leaves.

3. Brown and dead leaf tips or edges?
Burnt leaf tips often result from over fertilizing, sodic soils, animal urine, over application of manure or urea, or soluble salts in soils.

4. Tall and/or gangly plants with long and/or sparse leaves?
This is called 'legginess'; and is usually the result of shade or insufficient sunlight. Leaves may be unusually dark green. Arugula prefers full sun at cool temperatures.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you germinate arugula seeds?

Arugula can be easily sown from seed. Find a spot in full sun or partial shade, and sow seeds 1/4-inch-deep in rows 10 inches apart, leaving about an inch between each. If you prefer, you can also broadcast seeds and thin later to 3 or 4 inches apart.

Does arugula regrow after cutting?

Each arugula seed produces one thin stem, which leaves grow out from. You can further your crop by cutting them back — the leaves will regenerate once or twice before getting too spicy, woody, or bitter. Arugula will grow back once cut, so don't pull the stems.

How often should I water arugula seeds?

Arugula will do best when the soil is kept moist. While the soil should be kept thoroughly moist, avoid over watering. Root rot can set in quickly if the soil is allowed to become waterlogged. My best advise to water every other day or when the top inch of soil has become dry.
