The humble herb known as Rocket or Arugula is one of the easiest, fastest foods to grow. Perfect in pesto, delicious in dips … this slightly peppery green has many bonus health benefits. Flowers and flower heads can be snipped off and added to your salads or used as garnishes anytime.

Snip a leaf or two from the outside of the plant rotating around your plants as you need them. Don’t give one particular plant an all over haircut at once! You don’t want to leave rocket ‘nude’ with no leaves to photosynthesize with and continue to grow. Cut and let your rocket reshoot some new leaves from the centre, before coming back in a few days to pick some more around the outside of the plant.
