Giant Winter Spinach Seeds

[50 days] An Italian heirloom, Giant Winter Spinach is a high-yielding semi-savoyed variety with dark green, glossy leaves and a great taste. Plant this spinach in the fall and it will give you some of your first greens in the spring. Remarkably cold hardy, this spinach will make through all but the worst weather Britain can throw at you. In fact, it is one of the few plants that will keep growing in winter conditions, as opposed to just holding. It also keeps for a long time after reaching maturity, so you can pick when needed.

Tender and mild, this spinach is great cooked or fresh. Use in anything from salads to frittatas or just sauté it in a little butter. Also freezes well.

This variety is not for spring planting—it will bolt.

Sow your seeds 2cm deep with spacing of 10 cms between each seed, making sure to keep the soil moist. You can sow Giant Winter spinach every 4 weeks for continuous harvest of leaves for your fresh salads.

What is eating my Giant Winter spinach leaves? Cutworms, cabbage loops, cabbage earworms, snails and slugs love eating the leaves of your Giant Winter spinach. You can tell if your spinach crop is being attacked by mishaped holes on the edges or in the middle of your leaves.
