Spinach - Viridis Olter
Spinach is very easy to grow, rewarding you with a tasty abundance of broad, dark green leaves that can be eaten fresh or are ideal for freezing. Spinach is usually eaten cooked but it can also be eaten raw as a baby leaf in salads.
Sow outdoors. Before sowing, prepare the ground by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones. Make shallow channels (drills) in the soil 30cm apart. Sow thinly, 1cm deep in the drills. Cover lightly with soil. Thin out the plants when the seedlings are large enough to handle, to about 5cm apart.
