How to grow spinach

Spinach enjoys good quality soil with a good nitrogen content. Spinach has a tendency to "bolt," which means that it hurries into a flowering phase that stops the production of leaves. Long days make it more likely to flower, which is why you plant spinach early.

Planting Spinach

Plant spinach very early in the spring, making two or three different sowings so that you'll have spinach throughout the spring and summer. Sow again in late summer, 50 to 60 days before the average first frost.

Days to harvest: 40 to 50
Days to germinate: 7 to 21

Spinach leaves can be harvested at any time they look ready. Pick the large outer leaves, and the inner leaves will continue to grow and produce more delicious spinach!
