Review:

I grow this as a perennial groundcover. The vegetable garden is not a good place for it, better under trees or in an odd corner of the garden. It does not germinate easy, I think I soaked in hot water. It dies back when severe frost hits, it will come again (depending on the temperature). It is one of the perennial vegetables permaculturists like so much. NZ spinach must be boiled in water and the water thrown out to get rid of the oxalic acid. I don't use the stems and for this reason I don't use it a lot because the leaves are much smaller than with usual spinach.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
