Why Grow Arugula Microgreens?
Arugula microgreens boast a bold, peppery flavor with a subtle nuttiness, adding depth to salads, sandwiches, and more. Not only do they tantalize the taste buds, but they also pack a nutritional punch, loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Getting Started with Grassroots Farms Grow Kits

  1. Preparation: Begin by soaking Grassroots Farms Peat Pucks in water until they expand. Then, evenly spread your arugula seeds over the moistened peat pucks and gently press them in for good contact.
  2. Germination: Cover the tray to create a humid environment that encourages germination. Keep an eye on the moisture levels and ensure consistent watering to promote even growth.
  3. Light and Airflow: Move your tray to a sunny spot or under a grow light to provide ample light for healthy development. Ensure proper airflow to prevent issues like mold or fungal diseases.

Common Issues and How to Address Them

  • Overcrowding: Avoid planting arugula seeds too densely to prevent overcrowding, which can lead to airflow issues and increase the risk of mold or fungal diseases.
  • Uneven Germination: To promote uniform growth, maintain consistent moisture levels and provide adequate light for all seeds.
  • Bolting and Pests: Watch out for bolting, especially in warmer temperatures, and be vigilant against pests like aphids or flea beetles.

Harvesting and Enjoying Your Microgreens
Once your arugula microgreens reach a height of about 2-3 inches, typically within 7-10 days, they’re ready to harvest! Simply snip them just above the soil line with clean scissors and rinse them gently before adding them to your favourite dishes.

With Grassroots Farms Grow Kits and these helpful tips, you’ll cultivate vibrant and flavorful arugula microgreens right in your own kitchen! ๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿ’ง
