  • Spinach germinates best in cool soil.
  • Begin sowing in early spring as soon as the ground can be worked and frost free.
  •  Sow Aug into September for the autumn crop.
  • Sow about 12-18 seeds per foot, 1/2 inch deep, in rows 12-18 inches apart and thin when large enough.
  • Harvest young spinach leaves during growth and full-size, but before bolting.
  • Cut just below root attachment for “rooted spinach”, or cut higher for “clipped spinach.”
  • Spinach grows on a wide range of soils if moist and fertile, but is sensitive to acidity.
