Seed Details

Cold hardy annual salad green. Self-sows if left to go to seed in warmer climates. That quality makes it a great addition to a salad lover's garden as it is a perpetual cycle that consistently provides dark green leaves have a strong spicy flavour and aroma. Plant in late August for early spring harvest. Sow every 2 to 3 weeks when harvesting for a steady supply for your salads and garnishes. Goes very well in Pesto. May also be sauteed in olive oil. Tasty!!

Instructions

Direct sow. 2 mm deep in early Spring. Keep moist and protected from the hot afternoon sun. Germination is in 5 - 10 days. Easiest plant in our selection to grow.

Arugula does best in moist conditions and appreciates protection from the heat by mulching. Protection from heat will reduce bolting in hotter weather and climates.

Romans were known to use Arugula for both its leaves and the seed. The seeds were used to flavour olive oil and were a required ingredient in the making of an aphrodisiac. Arugula is high in calcium, vitamin C & beta-carotene. Its vitamin content is also proven a cancer fighter and antioxidant.

Arugula dates as far back as the first century throughout the Mediterranean and Southern parts of Europe. Its popularity in the modern-day has increased rapidly to spice up salads with its peppery leaves

I’ve purchased seeds from this company twice and both transactions were pleasant. I really loved the diversity and quality of the various seeds sold. My first purchase was three varieties of cherry tomatoes, lime basil, speckled lettuce, kale, French radish, cilantro and parsley. I called today and had an amazing 25 minute conversation about what seeds could work for my balcony garden as it transitions into fall. They are very knowledgeable, passionate and kind. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer friends or family to this small business as my preference is to shop local. I will be purchasing through them going forward as they were helpful and the quality of seeds are great.

I went a bit crazy this year and ordered seeds from large and small companies all over Canada. The Brother Nature website is enjoyable to browse, and I like how the seeds can be viewed by weather and light conditions, and perennials by hardiness zone. I feel that their prices, shipping offer, and the seed quantities are very reasonable. My Brother Nature order arrived in good time right along with the other seed orders placed at the same time, and their packaging was simple and environmentally-friendly.

I buy more and more seeds from Brother Nature each year! They offer excellent quality seeds, competitive prices, and great service! I enjoy the variety of seeds they carry and their seed envelopes have more info than your regular packet, even some history/origin behind the seeds, which I find very fun and interesting. Highly recommended.
