24 plants per strip
Beta vulgaris subsp. cicla var. cicla Spinach 'Perpetual Spinach' is easier to grow than ordinary spinach and produces a succession of flavourful and nutritious leaves for picking throughout the growing season. Frequent picking will ensure a continuous supply of tender young leaves. A fresh batch of plants planted in late summer will provide more leaves for picking the following spring if covered with straw or cloches during winter. Plant 30cm apart in well-drained, fertile soil, in sun or light shade.
Pick leaves with care to avoid disturbing the roots. Hoe regularly to keep weeds down. Water fortnightly in dry periods.
Plant outdoors from March to September and harvest from January to December.
