How to Grow Spinach in Your GardenSoxx®

Spinach can be planted from seed early in spring, as soon as the soil can be worked. It is well-suited for less compact soil as it puts out a deep taproot that will bring up nutrients as needed. Seed should be sown about half an inch deep and 2-3 inches apart, in a shaded area that still gets some sun throughout the day.

Spinach Seed to Harvest Time:  40 - 50 days

How to Harvest Spinach

One the growing spinach plants have at least 6-7 leaves over 4 inches, start cutting off the outer leaves for harvest, leaving the smaller ones to continue growing from the center. This will ensure a longer production period and should allow you to harvest more from your plants. If spinach begins to bolt, cut the main stem at the surface of the soil, leaving the roots in the ground to provide nutrients for future crops.
