Eating the last of the winter rocket before allowing two plants to go to seed. I also sow rocket and other Asian leaf crops in July for autumn & winter harvesting. I find there's not much point trying to grow rocket in late spring as it just wants to run to seed as soon as the temperature and light increases.

Thats a good point @landgirl. I generally get away with growing it in spring and then leave it. But I shall try sowing it in autumn this year...thanks. Our springs are very cool in Scotland so that makes it easier to grow salads in summer.

We've been eating it all winter and spring. Do try it @Patiorose and yes it helps being in cooler spring climates for salad!
