Win­ter spinach

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

Win­ter spinach seed has a sin­gle, blunt prickle stick­ing out from one side. Sum­mer spinach has round seeds. English spinach such as Blooms­dale is re­sis­tant to the heav­i­est frosts. It’s a per­fect time to di­rectly-sow a crop now. Don’t waste money buy­ing pun­neted seedlings – they de­test dis­tur­bance, caus­ing plants to bolt use­lessly to seed.
