- Flat-Leafed Spinach - Savoy Spinach - Semi-Savoy Spinach
Spinach is easily grown from seed, and can be started early indoors and planted out in early spring 4-6 weeks before last frost.
Keep your young seedlings and spinach plants well watered. Water will help them grow better and also keep the soil cooler.
Since spinach doesn’t take up a lot of room it grows great in containers. Try using a long window box type planter since spinach has shallow roots and doesn’t need a really deep planter.
Spinach can be harvested whenever it is the size you prefer- usually by 40-50 days.
