Botanical Name: Spinacia Oleracea

Rounded, dark green, smooth leaves. This superb modern variety is resistant to downy mildew races 1-7 and slow to bolt which makes it ideal for 'baby' leaf production or use as regular spinach.

We hope you enjoy these spinach seeds, just another great example of vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

How To Grow

Sow thinly in 1in (2.5cm) deep in rows 12in (30cm) apart. Water well during any dry spells. For baby leaves no further thinning is required if seeds are sown thinly. Repeat sowings at 2-3 weekly intervals for a continuous crop. For regular spinach, thin to 6in (15cm) between plants. Do not sow for mature plants in mid summer, only for baby leaf. Pick individual baby leaves as required to encourage further growth, up to 3-4 cuts.
