Detailed Product Info

David Landreth was born at Haggerston, Northumberland, England in 1752. He established one of the first American commercial seed companies. Bloomsdale spinach was originally released by D. Landreth & Company in the 19th century. In 1925 "Long Standing Bloomsdale" was released after being developed for bolt resistance by Zwaan and Van der Molen, Voorburg, Netherlands. Today, almost all spinach seed comes from the Pacific Northwest or international sources. This photo documents our efforts to breed spinach seed in what is considered "less than ideal" growing conditions. We believe that growing seed where it will be sown are the perfect conditions. Sow local!

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. Broadcast seeds in a well cultivated garden patch, or seed in rows 10" apart, and thin seedlings to 6". Spinach sown in fall will come up extremely early in the spring. When full size, harvest the entire plant promptly, especially in late spring, when it tends to bolt under heat pressure. Sow in successions for a steady crop. For a good fall crop, sow spinach in August. Fall crops yield until deep winter; with a cold frame, you can be eating spinach all winter long.
