Spinach is traditionally a cool season crop, but newer varieties permit sowings throughout the year. Not a good crop for hot districts. Manure well, keeping moist. Likes well limed soils.
Sow thinly every few weeks, in rows 30 cm. apart, 1 to 2 cm deep anytime except during summer. Keep well watered. Plants do not like strongly acid soils. Expect germination in 8 to 10 days at 18 deg. C. soil temperature. Grow in rich soil for best results.
