  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile and moisture retentive

    A very prolific summer spinach that's been a gardener's favourite since Victorian times, producing generous harvests of deep green crinkled leaves with a beautiful rich, savoury flavour. The plants stand particularly well without bolting, even in dryer conditions, and two or three sowings through the season will give you pickings right through into autumn.

  • Growing Instructions:Grow in light shade to keep leaves from wilting and prevent plants drying out and running to seed. Sow in shallow drills and thin seedlings gradually until plants are 25cm apart: the thinnings can be eaten as baby salad leaves. Keep well watered, especially in dry spells, protect from slugs and hoe between plants to keep the weeds down. Cut leaves as you need them from the outside in, leaving the central crown to grow on and produce more leaves for the longest possible harvest.

  • Sow: March-July

  • Harvest: May-September

  • Approximate quantity: 225 seeds.
