Botanical Interests Organic Bloomsdale Spinach
An old favorite with excellent flavor. Produces large quantities of tender, delciious leaves. HEIRLOOM.
28-45 days. Be strong to the finish and eat your spinach! In the 1930s, the spinach industry gave credit to the cartoon character Popeye for a 33% increase in national spinach consumption. Today, we don't need a beefy sailor to sell us on its benefits. If you haven't grown spinach before, the freshness and quality of homegrown will win you over. Bloomsdale is an old, dependable, open pollinated variety that is equally delicious full grown, or as a baby leaf. It's very nutritious – lots of vitamins A and C, and iron. Spinach plants are very cold tolerant. If you have limited space, or want to grow spinach in the off-season, you can grow it in a container!
This packet plants ten 10 foot rows.
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost, or as soon as the soil can be worked. Successive sowings thereafter every 3 weeks until 4 weeks before the fi rst fall frost. If mulched, spinach can overwinter in sub-zero temperatures.
When to start inside: Not recommended.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
