When all danger of frost has passed, direct sow arugula in full sun or partial shade, 1/4" deep and 3-6" apart in rows 10" apart. For continuous harvest, plant a new crop every 2-3 weeks until the heat of summer. Arugula tastes better when grown as a spring or fall crop since excess heat causes bitterness in the leaves. For a fall crop, plant the seeds in late summer. Arugula also grows well as a container plant or throughout winter in a greenhouse or a cold frame. Arugula can tolerate light frost, but if heave frost comes, provide protection for the plant. Keep arugula soil moist. Adding a layer of mulch can help with this.
