Ratings & Reviews

Wild Rocket

We absolutely love this wild rocket! Having now sown my seeds a few years ago my plants are still 'growing' strong - I cut them down almost to the base when they start to look a bit sad at the end of summer and they just re-shoot, with healthy and happy plants back in no time. They self-seed readily wherever the seeds drop which is good if you want more rocket. It also has an amazing flavour; I was expecting it to be quite peppery or spicy as it has been described online but ours has a lovely nutty taste to it that everyone loves. Not bitter at all like supermarket rocket often is! I recommend it to all my fellow gardeners as a must-have edible that is easy to take care of.
