Encouraging home gardening and seed saving since 1986

Spinach


Spinach has been grown in Europe at least since the Middle Ages. It self seeds easily and the volunteer plants are often our earliest spring greens. Seed spinach as early as possible in the spring as it prefers cool, damp whether and tends to bolt fairly quickly in the heat of summer. Alternatively, try seeding some in the fall, or allowing it to self seed, and the rosette will wait under the snow all winter and in the spring they will get an early start and produce lovely spring greens.

Bloomsdale

Bloomsdale was introduced by the Landreth Seed Co. of Baltimore in 1826 and improved in 1925. It has been the standard variety of spinach for over 100 years. It has large leaves with a somewhat savoyed (blistered) texture.

Lorelei

Lorelei comes from Europe. It claims to have been grown in the garden of Charlemagne. Plants branch outwards with flat, fairly thick leaves. Lorelei seems to be much slower to bolt than our other spinach varieties.
