HOW TO GROW SPINACH FROM SEED

PREPARE THE SOIL

Spinach plants can grow well when the pH is around 6.5-7.0.

So, if your soil is too acidic, you might want to treat it first (alkalinize it).

Spinach plants love moist, loose soil.

If you plant it in a container, make sure the container has holes in the bottom to help the drainage.

Spinach is a heavy feeder.

So, don’t forget to fertilize your soil well before planting.

Something to keep in mind is that the spinach plant needs full sun but it hates hot temperature.

So, you can grow it when the summer almost ends or when the spring starts.

SOW!

Grab a pocket of high-quality spinach seed and bring it to your garden.

Easily dig the prepared soil in your garden bed or your containers.

Sprinkle your spinach seeds on it and bury the seeds.

Make sure the seeds are sown 1/2 inch deep and 2-3 inches apart..

After that, give it some water.

WATERING

Spinach hates soggy soil. So, don’t be too harsh on watering.

If you it doesn’t receive any rain water, you can water it 1-2 times a week.

Never let the soil becomes too wet.

If you live in a cooler climate, you can be easy on watering since the soil doesn’t dry out fast.

HARVEST!

Potato plants usually can be harvested around 45 days after planting.

However, check your seed pocket. It might have a slight difference.

Oh, and if you hate bitter spinach, you’d better harvest your spinach on time.

And if you love baby spinach you can harvest your spinach before time.
