(Spinacia oleracea) A 1952 All America Selections winner developed by the Dutch seedhouse Sluis & Groot. Long-standing compact Bloomsdale type. Grows 8" tall with thick, deep green, savoyed leaves. Slow-growing, slow to bolt, heat and drought resistant. Fine quality, suited for spring sowing in long-day areas. Can be frozen, canned, or used fresh. 43-55 days
You can sow these seeds directly into the soil 1-2 weeks before your last frost date. If you sow a section or row every two or three weeks, you can get a continuous crop.
Keep the soil around these plants moist until the seed has germinated and weed free throughout the growing season. Mulching the soil around the plants will help keep the roots cool.
