Tasty, peppery, Arugula

These plants are growing like wildfire. They're big and healthy. I've cut them back several times when harvesting and they grow back very well every time.

Looking good!

This is my first time planting arugula and I cannot wait to enjoy this Veggie! It is thriving, healthy and has the perfect color to it!

Great product!

It's hard to find greens this time of year but I didn't want to fool with growing from seed right now. Clients like immediate results when I plant their gardens. GrowJoy is a perfect vendor for me!

First Time Growing Arugula

This is a great starter plant and almost doubles in size overnight. It is easy to add a leaf to a salad from this now bush size plant because it grew very fast. It also looks pretty in the herb garden with its variegated leaves.

Arrive quickly. Plant was healthy and packed perfectly!

astro arugula

Plant was very healthy upon arrival. I have cut several leaves so far for my salads and it is really very tender and delicious.

My first time ordering Arugula plant. The plants are doing very well after about a week in the ground

Still Puny

Living in Houston, who can resist something with ASTRO in its name. Not as big a competitor as the Rocket Arugula. Hopefully will find their stride and be on my plate, not the birds' dinner.

Very Satisfied

I have purchased herb plants from GrowJoy for the last two years. The variety and selection available was far superior to a previous on-line purchase from a large Home Improvement Store. The plants I received from GrowJoy were larger than expected and appeared very healthy. I was particularly impressed with how they were packaged and shipped. They are planted in containers on my co-op balcony and are thriving and will add considerable variety and flavor to my summer cooking.
