Review:

This year (2018) I planted Spinach for the first time! I was never a 100% spinach fan and now I can truly say that I AM! First I will cover how I planted it: I have a raised bed aprox. 1 ft. off the ground. The soil was a mixture of regular soil about 5 litres of compost and about 2 litres of horse manure. (the boxt is aprox. 4 ft. long by 2ft. wide. After thoroughly mixing I made a trench about 1 1/2 ft. wide in the center and 3 inches deep. I sprinkled the seeds throughout the trench and then covered. They grew without a single problem from pest!! Now why I like them: I only bought it for my girlfriend who makes a potato and spinach mix but I discovered much more and EASY ways to eat them. Once I tried a taste I was hooked and thank god a lot grew so I tried them in Spinach omelettes, salads, potatoe and spinach mix, on hamburgers (vegiburgers) and even LOVED to snack on them raw while in the garden! In conclusion I highly recommend this plant even for beginning gardeners!

What are the pros? Grows well in containers

What are the cons? n/a

Review:

I'd been looking for a spinach that would grow well in containers and late into the season, this is it. I keep shaded and it does great! Germinated quickly and slow to bolt.

What are the pros? Grows easily

What are the cons? Bolts fast

Review:

Easy to germinate, but bolts so fast. I planted these in cool weather but they still bolt and get misshapen and eaten by bugs. Don’t like it.

What are the pros? Super easy to grow.

What are the cons? Leaf miner loved them too.

Review:

Tasted amazing. My two year old would even sit on my lap to help "weed the garden" aka eat all the spinach. But alas, leaf miner got to them far too quickly so we didn't get much. Hopefully they'll do better in the fall.
