Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.

The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.

Rocket Wild (Diplotaxis tenuifolia) Herb in 9cm 

Wild Rocket is an easy growing perennial which will provide a bountiful crop of leaves for the entire season if one stays on top of the picking, working as a cut and come again crop. Rocket prefers rich moist soil and full sun, although will tolerate a shady situation. Wild Rocket will produce long flower stalks that hold yellow flowers all summer.

Herb Usage

Known primarily as a salad herb, the leaves of Wild Rocket have a more pungent taste when compared to its salad rocket counterpart. The sharp peppery, mustard taste is excellent on sandwiches, and can be picked through flowering.

    Arrived in good condition but pot-bound

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Aug 2019

    Plant arrived healthy and in good condition. It was well packed and protected. However I was surprised to find it pot bound. Thankfully, having prised the roots apart and potted it on it is growing away well.

    Perfectly Happy with the delivery and the plant condition. We split the plant into several smaller plants (in a medium tub with compost). All seems well after 2 weeks of growth in the garden.
