Rocket is an essential annual for the vegy garden.
Can’t do without it! Rocket leaf shape varies enormously on the plant from lance shaped to round, but the young leaves add an unmistakable tang to salads.
As Rocket gets older the tang turns into a more mature ‘bite’.
Rocket produces a huge quantity of flowers which have much the same qualities as the young leaves.
As with most salad greens, Rocket is diuretic, and is also helpful in settling an upset stomach.
This is a full sun salad herb and does help to make the vegetable garden full and prosperous.
