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 in situ in drills 30cm apart, and thin to 15cm between plants. Alternatively sow in modules and transplant to final spacing.
Crop history
Spinach (spinacia oleracea) was likely to be first cultivated in central and southwestern Asia; spinacia tetranda, the wild form of spinach, is still gathered as a wild edible green in Anatolia.

    Spinach – Early Prickly Seeded (Organic)

    £1.90

    Spinach – Early Prickly Seeded (Organic)

    A very hardy and fast-growing variety of spinach with smooth triangular leaves, ideal for an early or late harvest. Mentioned as early as the 13th century in Germany, the prickly seed lives up to its’ name; but produces a smooth leaf which is very pointy and triangular in shape. It has long been known as one of the hardiest varieties of spinach and as such is recommended for overwintering. It is ideal for getting those early spring greens onto the plate, or the late autumn greens from a late summer sowing. It’s fast growing, prolific and bolts slower than other varieties.
