This packet plants: One 20 foot row or four successive plantings of a 5 foot row.
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost, or as soon as soil can be worked. Successive plantings thereafter every 3 weeks until 4 weeks before the first fall frost (skip very hot summers). Mulched, spinach can overwinter in sub-zero temperatures.
When to start inside: Not recommended
Special Sowing & Germination Instructions: If seeding in late summer for fall crops, remember that spinach seed does not germinate well in heat, so temporarily shade your seeded area to keep the sun from heating up the soil, until seedlings emerge.
Harvesting: Pick individual leaves from outer edges as they become big enough to use OR cut the whole plant 1" above base and new leaves will grow. Harvest before plant sends up seed stalk (bolts).

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.
