A really hardy spinach which will shrug off frost, gales and even snow to keep you picking right through the coldest months of the year. The large, elegantly pointed leaves have a strong, rich flavour that's perfect in winter casseroles or lightly steamed as a delicious side vegetable.
- Growing Instructions:Sow in shallow drills in a sheltered spot in light shade, and thin seedlings gradually until plants are 25cm apart: the thinnings can be replanted to make additional rows. Keep well watered, especially in dry spells, protect from slugs and hoe between plants to keep the weeds down. Protecting with a cloche through the very worst weather prevents leaves getting damaged by winter gales.
- Sow: June to September
- Harvest: October to January
- Approximate quantity: 225 seeds.
