Sowing
Wild Arugula can be direct sown in the garden, or started indoors in flats, throughout the growing season. The seeds are very tiny, make sure not to bury them too deep and keep them evenly moist. 

Growing/Care 
In the heat of summer the plants require regular water to encourage consistant leaf growth. Unlike annual Arugula, the leaves stay tender and delicious through summer and when in bloom. 

Harvesting
Harvesting can be done by gathering outer leaves of plants individually, or with the use of scissors to gather all leaves at once. If latter method is used make sure to leave a few inches of green growth and water well to encourage new leaves to grow.

Culinary Uses
The leaves can be eaten fresh in salads or added to braising green mixes.

Medicinal Uses
Like many other Mustard Family plants, Wild Arugula is warming and increases circulation in the body.
