A valuable alternative to spinach as it is less likely to run to seed on dry soils. It can be grown in either full sun or light shade. Do not remove any seedlings from the plug. Plant 23cm (9") apart in the row and 38cm (15") between rows. Pick the young foliage and cook as spinach. On Receipt - Remove the plants from the packaging immediately upon receipt. Check the compost is moist and water if necessary. All the vegetable plants can be planted immediately into a moist soil in the garden, provided conditions are suitable. Once planted water well to settle the soil around the plants. Soil Preparation - Vegetable plants require a well drained soil in a sunny position that has ideally been dug in the autumn. Prior to planting lightly fork over the area removing any weeds that have grown, and break down any large lumps. Apply a general fertiliser such as Growmore and rake into the surface. During the growing period keep the plants well watered in dry spells and keep weeds under control.
