full of vitamins and minerals (especially iron) helps to keep
us healthy and happy, but nothing beats home grown vegetables
and one favourite is Spinach.
Spinach is a wonderfully easy and successful vegetable to
grow at home in the garden. The trick to full flavoured Spinach
is to grow it fast, so it is best to prepare the soil in advance.
Spinach likes a very nutrient enriched soil. To give your
seedlings or seeds a great start dig good quantities of 5 IN 1® Organic Plant Food into your soil before planting.
Spinach can be either grown from seed or bought as seedlings.
Either way, make sure they are in a sunny position and plant
them about 15cm apart.
WATERING & FERTILISING
To keep spinach growing fast, it needs regular watering and
fertilising. Water every 2-3 days and fertilise every week
with SeaMax® Fish & Kelp in the mornings or afternoons.
SeaMax® Fish & Kelp will maintain the plants health
and strong stem growth.
Spinach is ready for harvesting after about 8 weeks. Pick
the outside leaves while they are young and tender. Dont
pick them all in one go, as the plant will keep growing and
you can pick fresh leaves continually.
remember, for vitamin rich Spinach:
Prepare soil with 5 IN 1®
Plant in full sun about 15cm apart
Water regularly and fertilise with SeaMax® Fish &
you do this, youll have rich flavoursome tender Spinach
in about 2 months time.
Happy Gardening with Searles from the Searle family.
