Growing suggestions for spinach seeds

For summer varieties of spinach sow in late spring, and protect with fleece if there is danger of frost. For winter varieties sow at the end of the summer. Sow the spinach seeds in situ in drills 30cm apart, and thin to 15cm between plants. Alternatively sow in modules and transplant to final spacing.
