Detailed Product Info

Our chickens love table scraps and crow with glee when we scatter leftovers for them to devour. Too bad for them Bloomsdale rarely makes it from kitchen to coop. These succulent, slightly savoyed leaves are our earliest new growth greens after a winter of dried, frozen, canned, and fermented foods from last year's garden bounty. If you sow these seeds in November, you'll have something to crow about when the ground thaws next spring.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow Bloomsdale Spinach anytime soil can be worked in the cooler months, from about 6 weeks before first fall frost until the date of your last spring frost. Harvest promptly, especially in late spring, when it tends to bolt under heat pressure. Fall crops yield until deep winter; with a cold frame, you can be eating spinach all winter long.

Low germination rate of spinach seed Review by Bob B
I planted your Bloomsdale Spinach in three separate areas this year.....2 beds in one garden and once in another garden (about 3/4 mi. from first garden). The germination rate was well below 50%....I was disappointed. Seed is cheap, and I had planted groups of 5-10 seeds together, at 4" spacing between groups, with intention of thinning each group to one sturdy plant at the 4" spacing. The few plants that did germinate did not grow vigorously. One of the gardens had rotted manure added in the spring and the other had well rotted compost (from kitchen scraps). I haven't done a soil test....maybe I'm lacking some nutrient(s)? What do you think? Thanks ;) (Posted on 10/8/13)
