THE BEST TIME TO PLANT ARUGULA

Arugula thrives best in cool weather, when the temps are above freezing but below 75°F or so. 

You can begin planting arugula as soon as your soil is workable in the spring. It is a good idea to cover arugula seedlings with frost cloth or an old blanket if you do get another freeze.

Arugula is actually pretty cold- and heat-tolerant. Mature plants can hang in there during a light freeze and even when temps are soaring over 95°F. 

You can continue planting arugula by seed until about 4 to 6 weeks before your first frost date of the fall.
