Let the Herbs be Wild

Down with deadheading! “Lazy” gardening has much to recommend!

Common wisdom tells us to not allow Arugula (aka Salad Rocket) to flower and go to seed. But look how beautiful Arugula’s flowers are! And they’re edible too.

Not only do you and the insects get to enjoy the flowers, this lets the plants plant themselves. Arugula, lettuces, and many herbs will naturalize in your garden if you let them. So you get more plants with less work.

Go wild 🙂
