Description Sowing More Info Delivery
A decorative spinach variety bringing flavour and colour to the plate. Unusual red veining and red stems make this a stand out variety on the veg patch. Excellent as a baby leaf for salad use, when picked around 35 days from a spring sowing. The leaf veining becomes more pronounced as the plants mature into large leaves. Good downy mildew resistance, but water regularly in hot spells to prevent bolting. Optimum sowing time May - June and Aug - Sept

Sowing Months Harvest Months
Water spinach regularly as dry conditions may cause spinach plants to bolt. Hoe between rows to prevent weeds from establishing. A thick mulch applied around the plants will help to retain moisture in the soil. Harvest spinach leaves when required by picking a few leaves from each plant. Regular harvesting will promote a constant supply of fresh young growth. Alternatively pull up whole, mature plants.
Direct sow spinach outdoors from March to August in well prepared, fertile, moist soil in sun or semi shade. Early spring and late autumn sowings can also be made under cloches or in the border soil of a cold greenhouse. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2") in drills 30cm (12") apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 5cm (2") apart. The thinning are ideal for adding to salads. Sow every 3 to 4 weeks for a continual supply of spinach leaves throughout summer and autumn.
