Sow in pots indoors Feb. through Sept. Transplant 3-4 weeks after sprouting. May be direct sown
in early spring or late summer. Great choice for winter gardens in our region, but does not do well in summer heat. Bolts quickly; sow in succession for extended harvest. Flowers are edible.
Collect seeds from spring sown plants, selecting for slowest bolting. Cut seedheads when seeds are dry, thresh by hand or by dancing, winnow to clean. Isolate from other arugula by 1⁄2 mile.
