Description

The hot-weather standard since 1925. Glossy, deep green, nutritious leaves are prolific and “cut-and-come-back” when clipped about an inch off the ground. Bloomsdale keeps well and is very popular with fine chefs because of its delicate flavor when leaves are small/young. Slow to bolt and frost-tolerant. Sow in early spring and again in late summer for a fall crop. Use sautéed, in stir fries or raw in salads. Freezes well after blanching. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.

How many seeds do u put in one pot?
Elisa E on Feb 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We're presuming you are growing the spinach in a larger pot vs. a seedling pot and then transplanting it - in a larger pot (10" or larger, you can plant 6-8 seeds, cut the leaves and let them re-grow. Spinach does not transplant well.
