    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.
