Rocket Arugula Mild fast growing, here harvested as Baby Leaf Salad Greens at 8-15cm in 4-5 weeks. Click to hide.
Here we see they are grown rather densely in micro punnets which sit on the grill of the 330x245mm & 470x170mm trays. Again you start these just in the base of the tray, when the roots start appearing out the base of the punnet you add them to the grill along with the smaller centre lifter tabs. When grown this densely, we recommend to thin them out and then just start cutting the larger leaves. Click to hide.
Here they are growing in the base of 1 of our narrower sprout trays (470x170mm), this requires a little bit more watering, maybe 2 or 3 times a week, then if you had it sitting on the grill, this option is available but I wouldn't recommend it as necessary if doing it under lights, the convenience is just being able to take the tray into the kitchen and trim the leaves you need and then place it back without the fear of water spilling.

Here we see young Rocket being grown in punnets in Vermiculite in the long narrow trays (470x170mm), you can fit 6 punnets per tray but I would suggest 5 which leaves small spaces between each one which makes it easier for watering, also so the leaves can spread out. Click to hide.
Here we see 5 punnets of rocket per tray growing in 1 of our narrow stands designed for kitchen bench or bookshelf, notice the lights at the front can be pivoted so they face back in towards the plants, this is beneficial to take advantage of the reflection from the white background. Click to hide.
Here we see 3 punnets of rocket per tray growing in 1 of our narrow stands designed for a sunny window ledge, these stands will work down to a minimum of 70mm of window ledge depth. Here we have the grill that fits these trays covered with paper towel which acts as a capillary agent until the roots have grown through the slots, in this situation where you have more heat and evaporation it is really an advantage to have the extra volume of water in the reservoir, but you don't have to, you can do as per previous picture but you just need to keep an eye on watering especially in summer.

A Mediterranean native, it is a popular spring salad green in Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, and all the way to North Africa. The leaves look vaguely like dandelion leaves but that’s where the similarity ends. Dandelion greens have to be choked down, arrugula makes the taste buds extremely happy. They scream, give us more of that please. It may be free in certain parts of the world, but it is by no means cheap in flavour. It has such a rich taste it is impossible to describe, you simply must taste it yourself. Around the Mediterranean , arrugula is credited with stimulating the taste buds and health in general. From the biblical days forward, Turks, Greeks, and Romans wrote and raved about its health giving properties. It was grown in gardens in ancient Rome and can still be found in the Roman market today.
