Spinach is highly nutritious, full of iron and vitamins. Delicious when lightly steamed and becoming ever more popular used as a 'cut and come again' baby salad leaf for mixed salads.
Seed Count: Approx. 200
Outdoors: sow thinly, February-August, where they are to crop, 2.5cm (1") deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, moisture-retentive soil, which has already been watered. Sowings from July onwards should only be grown for baby leaves. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Water well and ensure soil remains moist to prevent plants running to seed. No thinning is necessary if only baby leaves are required. Thin to 10cm (4") apart to produce mature plants. Do not allow plants to dry out as this will make them bolt. Harvest: May-October. Harvest unthinned as baby leaves. Take a few leaves from each plant, allowing them to regrow for two or three more pickings.
