Botanical Interests Organic Heirloom Bloomsdale Spinach Seeds
This heirloom spinach is an old favorite among gardeners. It has very dark green glossy savoy-type curled leaves. Bloomsdale also has excellent flavor, is bolt resistant, and is easy to grow. Spinach is a nutritional powerhouse that is delicious fresh or steamed! In the 1930's, the spinach industry credited 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! A low calorie nutritional powerhouse, spinach is loaded with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Folate, Iron, Calcium, antioxidants, fiber, and many other nutrients. We love to eat it steamed with nutmeg or raw in salads, but you can also eat it sauteed with pastas, omelettes, and in dozens of other dishes. Its uses in the kitchen are nearly limitless!
When to plant outside: RECOMMENDED: Early spring, 4-6 weeks before average last frost, or when soil temperatures reach 35 degrees or higher. Successive plantings thereafter every 3 weeks until 4 weeks before the first fall frost (skip very hot summers). Mulched, Bloomsdale 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.
