Overview of F1 Spinach
Winter spinach is a type of green leafy vegetable, closely related to cabbage leaves, that is seasonally available in the wintertime. The glossy, dark green leaves are savoyed and selected to be cold-hardy. Varieties with high yields are recommended for fall crops, winter greenhouse production, or overwintering outdoors under mulch.

How to sow and care for F1 Spinach
Winter Spinach can be grown from seeds quickly. Thinly sow the seed into 30cm apart, 1.5cm deep drills. It takes between 12 and 20 days for the seed to germinate as soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, thin to one every 7cm and again 3 weeks later to one every 15cm, during the micro-leaf and baby leaf stages. As an alternative, you can start in early spring when the soil temperature is over 14 degrees Celsius. In mid-to-late summer, plant-heavy seeded rows every 10 to 14 days, with 30 seeds per foot.
Hydrate the plants regularly, especially during dry periods, to prevent bolting. Pick the leaves regularly to ensure growth and continued leaf production—plant in autumn and cover with mulch to ensure a spring harvest. Fertile soil amended with compost or well-rotted manure provides the best growing conditions. They can either be started inside or transplanted later, but it is not recommended. Plants for winter spinach can be started outdoors after one to two months and harvested after one to two months.
