Sweet rocket is a wonderful plant Jack! I sowed some in 2012 into seed trays and then potted them on until they were big enough to go out. In their first year they grew into very large flat rosette type plants and last year they certainly did rocket up!
I had armfuls of cut flowers last year and they smelt amazing. I did get some white cabbage catepillars on them but I had so many it didn't matter to me. I was surprised how big they got! I grew mainly the white ones but had a few purple ones as well. Did dig up a couple of the bigger sweet rockets when I moved here and I think i might get some more flowers this year as well
Also a big fan of night scented stock, one of the first that grew from seed and grow it every year.
My last garden was grown with all insects in mine and had some evening primose as well, looks some of it has snuck it's way here when I potted up some other plants!
Haven't tried nicotians yet. Good luck with your wildlife friendly garden
