"Tasty, peppery, Arugula"

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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!

Comment: 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.

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

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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.
