Roquette ‘Astro’

Roquette ‘Astro’

Baby Leaf Arugula

My favourite roquette, it’s spicy but not too hot. Its leaves are wide and not deeply lobed. It stands hot summer temperatures well. I can pick it nearly the year round if I plant it anew every six weeks or so.


When to sow: Late winter late autumn
Where to sow: Sow in a 10cm wide band
Depth to sow: 5mm
Aspect:  Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.
Soil:  Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add   lime if soil is too acid.
Spacing: 10 seeds per 5cm Between rows: 30-40cm

Directions:  Roquette is so easily grown and makes such a refreshing salad that it’s hard to imagine not having any to pick.  Plant successive batches every six weeks or so.

Packet 500 seeds
