Description

A good, healthy variety with dark green leaves that have a wonderful soft texture as well as excellent flavour.

Grow it as a cut-and-come again salad leaf, picked at the baby leaf stage, or space it more widely and harvest leaves fully grown. I find spinach does best in dappled shade.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Spinach is best grown in a fertile, moisture-retentive soil improved with well-rotted organic matter such as garden compost. Leaves can develop a bitter taste if grown in soil that lacks nutrients. Keep plants well-watered during hot, dry weather.
