Buy Arugula Rocket Seeds

Rocket is a ‘must-have’ crop for commercial growers because it is profitable, fast growing and popular with consumers. Grow it as a ‘cut and come again’ baby leaf to get the most value from your crop.

Rocket adds a zest of flavour to a boring bag of mixed lettuce and baby leaf. Combine it with Red Oakleaf lettuce, Beet or Chard Baby Leaf, spinach and green lettuce for a well-balanced Mesclun mix.
