Cultivation advice

Sowing

Rucola grows quickly and should be sown successively from early spring. Sow 0.5 cm deep and watering the row is a good idea. It can also be sown indoors the year around.

Spacing

Does not need thinning if sown thinly. Give it 15 cm distance for vigorous plants.

Harvest

Pick young leaves or whole plants early. Cut off plants yield another crop.

Seed

4500 seeds/gr. One portion sows 5-10 m directly.
A portion contains about 2000 seeds.
