How To Germinate Spinach  Seeds

 Method 1

Leave  the spinach seeds in water for a while one day  before germination. Then put those seeds into pieces  of damp cotton or cloth. Make sure that the cotton or the piece of cloth is damp. After the seeds split their outer seed casings you can plant it wherever yo  want without harming the sprout. You can water it approximately one for each 5-6 days

Method 2

Leave  the spinach seeds in water for a while one day  before germination. Then leave those seeds on the ground. If you use a flowerpot fill 90% of the flowerpot with sifted preferably red soil and leave it on the soil. Put a thin layer of turf on it and damp it. (Make sure to water them without moving the seeds) you can also use the green house technique while damping it. In order to create a foggy effect while damping it, you can use a glass cleaner spray to damp the turf. Then you can wrap it with a plastic foil which increases the greenhouse effect inside the flowerpot and quicken the germination. Check the humidity every day and keep on damping with the spray. Waiting time depends on the type of the seed. Keep on damping during the waiting period.



Growing Spinach - advice on how to grow Spinach

Spinach is relatively easy to grow in cool climates and it is packed with nutrients such as iron, protein, vitamin A and chlorophyll.

Whether raw in salads or lightly steamed spinach is a suitable accompanyment to a wide range of dishes.

Preparation

Germination of spinach seeds can take anything between a week and 2 weeks.

Dig the soil to around 30cm depth as this is how far the plants tap root can develop. Work some organic compost or manure into the soil to help provide the necessary nutrients for growth.

Because of the benefit of organic matter cover crops and green manure crops are beneficial prior to planting spinach.

Check the soils PH and if necessary add lime.

Sowing

You can plant spinach in early spring. To stagger your crop over summer you can plant part rows every few weeks. The last planting should be about 50-60 days before the first frosts.

Sow your seedlings / seeds around 7cm apart in rows about 30-40cm apart.

Position

Position your spinach plants in a position that does not experience high temperatures. Spinach grows well in partial to full sun.

Soil type

Spinach likes a moist but not waterlogged soil. Using a mulch of straw or grass clippings can help to retain moisture levels in the soil.

The soil should contain a good amount of organic matter to provide the spinach with the nutrients it requires.

Spinach doesn't like acidic soils, a good PH is around 6.3 -6.8. Add the appropriate amount of lime to the soil if necessary.

Tending

Make sure the soil is moist. An inch of water per week is adequate when there is little rainfall. Thin out your spinach seedlings as required but try not to damage the roots of the plants you leave in the soil.

Effects of an over acidic soil can be seen in the yellowing of the edges of seedling leaves, low germination rates and slow growth.

Harvesting

Spinach is ready to harvest at about 40-50 days after planting.

The spinach leaves can be harvested whenever they look big enough and ready for your salads etc. Make sure to start picking leaves on the outside of the plant, the inner leaves will then continue to grow and produce a new crop. Alternatively you can harvest the whole plant.

You should aim to eat the spinach straight after picking and washing in cool water. You can store the washed leaves in the fridge for a few days but the taste and nutrient content is best after picking.

Varieties

Slow bolting varieties are varieties that take longer to develop a seed stalk and thus focus more growth towards the leaves. Short days and cool temperatures result in better crop yield as bolting is deterred whereas long days and higher temperatures encourage bolting.
