Good things take time and care
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.

You are reviewing : Arugula Seeds (Rocket Cultivated)
Very happy with this purchase....no complaints. Thank you v much!
The seeds sprouted well in the garden, and provided yummy spring leaves. So far I have sprouted about 20 of these seeds with 100% success rate.
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.
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.
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.
Let's pass it on cleaner, better, and greener.
