New Zealand Spinach tips: Sow seeds directly into a well-prepared seedbed. Sow them into drills that are 30cm apart. Cover with soil. Thin seedlings to 15cm between plants once they have come up. Alternatively, start plants off in small pots in a greenhouse and transplant out after the chance of frost has passed. Keep plants moist.
